I don't know where I went wrong! Ha. The instructions on this skirt mold don't tell you how full to fill the pan. I assumed fairly full since you want a large skirt. Even after cooking my cake 10-15 minutes longer than instructed, the cake was still not done in the middle. I started getting concerned it was overcooking at the edges. Thoughts? Perhaps I just overfilled? I filled to about 3 inches from the top. I ended up having to toss the entire thing, and instead used 2, 6-inch rounds, topped with a dome.
AIt's best to bake at a lower temperature and for a longer period of time.
I will try that next time. Thanks!
It does take a while to bake. Just DO NOT OMIT THE CENTER ROD!!! This is critical for it to cook.
AI used it. Have either of you used this mold? Tell me specifically, how full was the pan, what was your oven temp and cooking time? Thanks.
Yes, mine is well used. I bake at 325 and it does take a while. I set the timer for 35mins and use a wood skewer to check doneness. I reset the timer and check it again. I fill to 1.5 inches from top as I like it to be as high as possible. I don't remember how long it takes to bake as I never paid attention.
When I take it out, I cool covered by paper towels. Air conditioning can contribute to dry cake while cooling.
