Hello everyone!

I have MANY nordicware and wilton 3D cake pans and form pans and I always end up with the same issue. Outside crunchy, inside mushy. My cornucopia turns out fine but my christmas tree ends up having a charcoal burnt star.
I have read that I need to lower the cooking temperature but different people say different things. Also, how much longer do I need to cook it for?

I will be baking soon for Halloween (3D skull Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting).

Any help is appreciated!!

Well it really does depend on where you live as humidty etc play a factor..Also everyone's ovens are different and one may be hotter than the other etc..First check to see if your oven is baking at the true temperature...You can do this by buying a oven thermometer.I bake my 3D cakes at 350 if they are a dark cake like chocolate and 325 for white cakes as they tend to burn faster on the outside so take longer at lower temp.3D pans also take longer anyways....Use a wooden skewer to check the inside and keep watchin..I check mine every ten minutes after they are almost done just to be sure they don't over bake.HTH
