1We baked it for approximately 1 hour and 10 min. but after 55 min checked it every 5 min for doneness. Every oven is different and so are the sizes of the pans. Be diligent as you don't want the cake to burn or get crusty edges if you can help it.
2Cool for one hour before removing from 'pan". Decorate as desired. Mine is still an empty canvas.
3I forgot to say that you should grease then flour the dish generously. These cakes are good for doll,fairy or clown cakes.
