Liner paper disaster!! Cake baked up between the cake pan and paper… What do I do now?

Help! I’ve made this cake three or four times but I’ve never had THIS happen. Help! Any suggestions for how to approach this??

Shame no photo was shared.

Anyhow, I'd try to slice around the paper, patch it up with the icing and just shrug off the mishap. It happens.

Best of luck.

Thanks for your fast reply. It’s strange, I did try to share the pic. Trying again. I will try to patchwork with icing…’ll be…..interesting :-)

You are using a conical funnel cake mold and the cake will be flipped upside down meaning the loose pieces will naturally lean toward the center.

This cake batter appears to be fairly moist so the pieces should be fairly adhesive on their own, meaning less icing will be necessary for the repairs.

Do your best and laugh it off. Most importantly, it looks like a good bake despite its misshapen appearance. I've seen greater disasters before.

Hope it turned out ok! I've never seen this happen either. One tip that could be helpful: I lightly butter a cake pan before adding the parchment so the butter helps hold the parchment in place.
