Problems with Wilton doll cake pan

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have made (2) doll cakes using the Wilton doll cake pan. Both times the cake didn't bake up right. It had the consistency of a very dense, wet cake. I bake it approx 15 minutes longer than what was stated in the instructions because the cake wouldn't bake!!

Has anyone had this problem?

I have only experienced this while making this type of cake.

I lower my temp. to 325 and once the top is raised and browned I put a loose piece of aluminum foil over top (I don't secure the foil, just cover the top with a sheet of it) so that the cake doesn't continue to brown, while it lets the inside of the cake continue to bake.

They take forever to bake..........mine took a good hr. and 15 min. I believe!

I've used the doll pan quite a few times and lower the temp of oven and bake longer.
Do you use the center rod? I do.
I knew somone who didn't and she had problems with her cake baking properly.

I ended up using a couple more inverted flower nails to get the cake to rise evenly. I baked mine for a really loooooong time, too.

The cake is bowl shaped. Where did you put the flower nails so they'd stay put?

When I make the doll cake, I make two cakes for the right proportion. Otherwise I get a short doll. I make the doll mold cake with one cake mix, and then make a 9x2 round that I can use to get the doll taller. It doesn't take so long to bake, and it bakes up lighter. It also produces more servings, which works for parties larger than 12. I torte and stack the cakes with straws and cake board, and dowel off-center to the back. I like to use a real doll, wrapped in cellophane, so the cake becomes a cake and a present. The doll clothes and accessories are put into a gift bag. Great idea about the foil cover!
