Cake over baked?

I made a buttermilk sponge cake...it wasn't done when the timer went off, and then I left it in a bit too long. It's browner than I'd like but not burnt, I think. How can I tell if it's overbaked?

Or use an overbaked cake I. Trifle or tiramisu, so it can borrow moisture from liqeuer and cream

You're probably fine. The truest way to tell if a cake of over baked is if, when you slice it horizontally into layers, they break. By then it's a bit too late. That said, icing covers a multitude of sins.
