Some cakes are a bit crumbly. Are you certain this isn't supposed to be one of them?

I suspect it was over baked. In teaching, I find it's pretty common for people to be more concerned about under baking to the point that they over bake cookies, muffins and cakes. You can certainly use the toothpick method to test for doneness, but it is just as effective to lightly tap the top of the center. When it feels springy, but not soft, it is done. If you wait until it begins to pull away from the sides, it is overdone.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
