When I baked a 10" cake recently (orange/poppyseed) it had a big dome, despite the bake-easy strips so I decided to try a flower nail as well as the strips.  I used the nail and reduced the temp 15 degrees C but then I found the centre of the cake was sunken (around the flower nail) even though it was cooked.

 

Is this a problem with using the nail, or should I not have reduced the temp?  Why would this have happened??

You probably shouldn't have reduced the temp. The flower nail shouldn't make that happen.
