I am making a giant cupcake as a birthday cake but having trouble with it cooking in the middle and being brick hard on the outside!
When i made the cake a month ago everything went fine but tonight both attempts have gone straight in the bin!
Ay suggestions for even cooking or am I better off cooking both parts seperately?
You need to bake it at a lower temp for a longer time - this pan was a great concept but poorly thought out in production by Wilton. It should've been 2 seperate pans.
I had the same problem, so the last two times I've used that pan I've cooked each sides separately. It's obviously more time consuming, but I've found it works better.
Where abouts in the oven did you put it and at what temp? Did you put water in the side of the pan without cake mix?
Thanks for the advice
I just put it in the middle of the oven at 325. I didn't put water in the other side, but I'm sure it wouldn't hurt. Good luck!
i only bake in the top part and prefer to bake a 7" and 8" cakes then trim down for the bottom part.
I've just done a third attempt cooking both parts separately and it still didn't work. I'm about to give up!
I have never seen the pan but can you use a flower nail on the bottom of the pan to help it bake in the center. When I make a big cupcake cake I use a 7" round , then stack 2- 8" rounds on top and sculpt the sides. It's very easy and I've always had good results. Hope this helps
Good Luck !
