I'm trying to back a cake using the wilton ball pan and my cake is completely dry and craking on the outside and raw on the inside! I set my oven at 325 and used a flower nail in the center. I wanted to use a wet towel around it, but couldn't get it to stay up, so I had to go without that. What do I need to do different next time?? icon_cry.gif

The 6 inch ball pan and I used a chocolate mud cake recipe. I cooked that sucker for an hour, added another flower nail on top, and the center still had areas that were raw! So frustrating!!

Just in case anyone needs help with this in the future, I did figure out how to bake a perfect cake with the Wilton ball pan. I found another discussion recommending to set your oven at 300 and putting a pan of water on the bottom rack of your oven. I did all that as well as put a flower nail in the center, baked my cake for an hour, and it came out perfect!
