I asked my DH to take my cake out of the oven while I ran an errand. He said he left it in longer than the time I told him but I just went to get it out of the pan and the middle is still raw icon_cry.gif I am trying to stay calm, it was on the counter 1-2 hours, can I put it back in the oven now to cook a few more minutes??? Please help.

If it's been out of the oven for 1-2 hours, I don't think it will work. Here's a bump...

I'd suggest trying it out what can ya lose? lol I made the sports ball cakes the other day for a project I was working on icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif and they didn't turn out right the first time so after they had been in for the entire time suggested plus another 20 minutes I poked a hole in the center and all this uncooked batter ran out and I tried the other one and it was fully UNcooked in the center only the outer shell of the cake was cooked the intire center was still raw so I chunked em into the disposal and started over not putting so much batter in it this time lol. But I would say go ahead and try and if all else fails start over icon_sad.gif

If it is just for you, go for it, but if it is for a special occasion or someone else ,I wouldnt chance it. I just dont think the results are going to be very good.

Hi everyone,

Well I did try to re-bake and the mushy part in the middle seemed to firm up. The only problem was I had already cut the top mound of the cake
off so that part started to crack. When I inserted a toothpick it looked fine and when I torted the cake the middle looked OK. The only problem is it was for Thanksgiving and I wanted to freeze it and de-frost the night before to decorate. That meaning I couldn't cut it last night to be sure it was OK. It is only my immediate family on Turkey day so I am going to serve it and see what happens icon_confused.gif They know I am just beginning and there will be plenty of other desserts so if it is bad icon_cry.gif I guess they will just eat something else. I just have a very judgemental mother so that I am not looking forward to icon_mad.gif Since I started the whole decorating idea she suddenly has a lot of opinions on it all! I'll let you know how it tastes, thanks for all your help.

That's never worked for me. I found that the center would firm up but then the rest was over cooked. Hasseling with something like that isn't worth the frustration for me because I know I'm going to end up throwing it out and starting again. Sorry that happened to you. If you're going to frost it will it even be evident that there was any problem? AND if you don't say anything about having had a problem no one will know, right? Okay Girl, just don't tell on yourself!! And have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hun to avoid your mother and her input on turkey day, I would take the time to REMAKE the cake tonight. Since your plan is to freeze and defrost wednesday night, you could make it tonight and freeze it and have it be perfect. That way there is NO chance she might have something negative to say about it. I know how bad it hurts me when people knitpick at my baking and the lack of talent they seem to think I have.... so I'd take the easy way out of this one and just remake the cake lol

It worked , It worked!!! We finally dug into the cake tonight and it was cooked all the way through icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif How sad that I am thrilled because my cake was not raw icon_confused.gif I had put it back in the oven for another 10 or so minutes after it was totally cool but it worked. The cake was so fresh and everyone raved about it. It was spice cake with cinnamon buttercream icing and my niece said it was the "best cake I've ever had". Keep in mind she is only 16 icon_wink.gif I was starting to loose confidence in my limited abilities so it was really nice to have this work out and taste yummy. Can you believe I forgot to take a picture of the dumb cake after all this dunce.gif We had SO many pies left over without even being touched but my cake is almost gone thumbs_up.gif
