I am making a wedding cake 6,9,12. WASC for 12" chocolate version of WASC for 9" and 6" Ok so I do the 12" first turns out beautiful. Then onto the 9" chocolate. I used a flower nail in pan it was rising nicely, then all of a sudden the center caved in. Scraped that one, then did the 6" same thing happened. What did I do wrong? same oven, flower nail etc. I have to remake these cakes now and I don't want to pitch 2 more in the garbage and I need to have them done tonight. Can anyone shed light on this one?

Did you open the oven door while they were baking? Overmix the batter? Anything at all different from the first one?
I had the same thing happen recently with both a WASC and a chocolate WASC, both 9x13, so thanks for asking this. I never figured out what happened to mine.

Are you using a flower nail for the 9" and 6"?? I only use them on 10"+. I never need them for smaller pans. I bake at 325 for everything. Maybe it's the recipe, have you used it before? Sorry, but curious to find out.

Yeah, I use my flower nail for smaller cakes too. I would turn the temp down and cook it longer. HTH

I always bake at 325. I did use flower nail for the 9 x3 pan. I don't think I overmixed it. I have timer on my mixer that I set. I used cakepro's recipe . Can't figure it out. Maybe I will go with a chocolate with pudding added instead lol. Bride is a friend so she will be ok with it. Just wanted to give her what she wanted.
