This is the second time this week my cakes came out like this.  I am using the same batter, pans and oven that I always use.  The only thing different that was used was my pudding mix, it was fat and sugar free but I didn't know that until after I baked the cakes.  Do you think the pudding is the reason my cakes are separating like this?  Thanks in Advance!icon_lol.gif

Yes.  If that was the only thing you changed then it stands to reason.  Cakes are sensitive to chemical changes and in this case you went fat and sugar free.    On the up side if you stack them and frost them, it would make an interesting cake shape.   People will ask how you did it!

LOL!  Well it did make it super easy to cut my cakes in half!  I will make sure I read my pudding mix carefully before I buy it next time.  Thanks for your response!!

Hey...you may be on to something!  A cake that naturally tortes while you bake.  Genius!

You could make some ginormous whoopie pies with those!  :)

 

I hate when stuff like that happens.  Good luck!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Thank you for posting that. I have list of "what went wrong" somewhere but it has been pieced together over the years. This will certainly save time and headache!
