My daughter's 18th. birthday today- made a strawberry cake + extender @ 325 for 50 minutes and it sunk! WHY?
How do I prevent the cake from sinking in the middle?
Cake Central Top Picks
strawberry cake ain't easy
what kinda recipe/mix went with the extender?
how big was it?
and so sorry that happened
sometimes you can cut out the bad part and section in cake parts you cut off elsewhere
sandwiched in with icing
if there's no time/ingredients to make more
hmm, mighta been the pudding that sunk it--i don't know
i can add sour cream and the rest but the pudding additions work best in a bundt pan for me
for me yes i use instant--i can't hardly bake with pudding except in the pans with the nice big holes
i guess lots of people on here do use pudding successfully in regular cake pans--i ain't one of 'em
i just don't know how to avoid the death valley
hopefully someone will chime in soon for you
plus you mighta over filled the pan--maybe
6 cups of batter for a 10"
the amount of batter in those real thick cakes can be tricky
