You might be able to stick the piece that broke off back onto the main cake with buttercream. Something like that happened to me before and that's what I did. You could never tell once it was all covered in BC.
To the WORLD you may be ONE person but to ONE person you may be the WORLD.
Is it because of the heating core? I swear I could never get that stand-up bear pan to work with the core and I finally had to just use it without it and had success. I think it's just me, though. Everyone else seems fine with it. My cakes kept breaking.
give me cake or give me...eh..something else with lots of sugar.
How quickly did you take him out of the pan after you took him out of the oven? If he doesn't cool enough in the pan--he is going to keel over like that.
Also--when I make him I always take out the heating core before I remove him completely from the pan.
And--what type of batter did you use? Generally, a mix of a pound cake and a regular cake mix will do. When I do him chocolate, I use DH Chocolate Fudge and a package of choc fudge pudding and add in an extra egg. I believe it's the recipe for the DH Chocolate poundcake found on the side of the box.
I've never had him decapitate like that. Looks like gravity did a number on him.
