AHi Chocolattiaz,

The reason why the brown one has gone that way would be because the oven was too hot or if it was over-baked without realizing. What recipe did you use if you don't mind me asking? Because the reason for those air bubbles could be a few reasons 1. the mixture was under-mixed when you added the flour. 2. If the mixture is too dry it will tend to contain pockets of air instead of the air being distributed throughout the mixture or 3. If the flour and raising agent were not sifted in or mixed together properly. Please don't be deflated, what flavors have you got for each tier? I always put parchment underneath the mixture so it doesn't burn and use Wilton'sBake Easy spray, leave it ten mins and then put it on a wire rack to cool :D jess x
