I have just flipped my cake out of the long loaf pan to find the bottom completely collapsed. It's NOT done!!! This is three cake mixes. One of which was already cooked, cut, frozen and placed in the pan prior to the other two mixes being poured around them. This is not something I've ever attempted and the directions were somewhat vague. Is there anyway I can save my cute carrot in the dirt cake???
oh to make a cake that shows a carrot when you slice into it ?
were the carrots still cold/frozen when you put it in the oven?
oh shoot i'm sorry that happened --
an iota of information for round 2 carrot in the dirt cake is that the internal temperature for pound cake should be 200 - 210 degrees f -- so that will help to ensure you get it right next time --
yes cut the carrots out of there and let's do it again -- is that possible?
I'm thinking this is a carrot colored and shaped CAKE, where batter is poured around it and the whole thing is baked. Like those polka dots cakes of a year ago.
The answer is to *always* line the bottom of a cake pan with paper - either parchment or waxed paper.
To salvage this - get the carrot part of the cake out if you can, reshape it, freeze it, line the bottom of the pan and start over.
