Turn the oven down!!! You're cooking the outside before the inside even has hope of catching up, and as you realized, it is not death for cakes, but terrible for your cuppies. Maybe even lower it to 315? I never bake above 320. Even big cakes.
I wish we still could count on emails to alert us when there is a response!!Update- I actually got a response from the bride (yes, on her honeymoon), she said her daughters were in charge of the getting the items to me, and she was very disappointed because the venue was supposed to have the items out for them to see...

I have had about 6 calls this week about 2011 weddings. I am raising my prices on Jan 1, 2010, so I am telling them they can book the cake, but I will not guarantee pricing until Jan. Is this normal? Are you already booking that far?
