WAIT, WAIT, WAIT A MINUTE!!! After seeing all these positive responses it is OBVIOUS to me that I need all of your help!!!
I bought the BC version, because like all of you, I thought that was probably the coolest thing I had seen in years!! Got it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for 19.99 MINUS the 20% coupon... so got it CHEAP! Brought it home, have tried it several times, and want to strangle Betty Crocker with her jaunty little neckerchief ever since!! HELP ME!! Here's the deal...
#1. Cannot use 'doctored' cake mix... it flops. You have to bake it longer to try and get it done, and then it tastes burnt, even though it's barely done baking. Has anyone else made it work with a doctored mix? What did you do differently?
#2. You have to cool it in the pan to retain the shape... when I do that, the condensation runs down the center pan and makes a wet spot in the center of the domed cake, which then makes it all nasty and it breaks. Should I cool it upside down so that the condensation runs out instead?
I wanted this pan to work, I was all excited, was going to buy all the mini's and everything, but then found that this stupid thing wouldn't work!! Someone please tell me they can solve my problems!! I want it to work SO BADLY!!! It looks so awesome on the commercials!!
