...but the cakes stuck to the tins.
I'm utterly depressed.

What should I do, besides moving countries and trying to erease this failure from my brain?

I think I will eat the two layers separately, they seem yoummy even if they're all cracked from my attempts at turning them out.

you greased and floured the tins? (you can flour with cocoa powder) if worse comes to worse, make icing and take the cake crumbles and make cake balls. mmmmmmm, cake balls......

Yes, I did. Sigh.

Not a fan of cake balls, but my mom is... uhm, I may give it to her, good idea!

that sucks. surely you will get lots of comments about oven temp and such but that doesn't make it any less frustrating. are the pieces teeny tiny? if they aren't you could cut them out with biscuit/cookie cutters... dip/cover in icing.... like one of those horrible little debby cakes only good!

I stopped poking at them, one looks okay but it's stuck, the other one I cut in slices.
Mom's flatmates are not picky, luckily, and is seems really tasty, so I think it will be okay. Thanks for the ideas! <3

It's just frustrating because I envisioned a beautiful layered cake, sigh.

Getting my oven temperature seems too big a hassle, frankly. Lazy.

Sounds like a situation for a trifle.

That sounds like a bummer. Maybe parchment would help next time? I have a friend who greases and flours her parchment paper for cakes - I thought she was a little crazy, but perhaps it is necessary.

That sounds like overkill! Parchment is more than sufficient.

Sorry Falafel, about the cake not turning out. Definitely try it again. It's such a good one!

yeah, cutting out a circle of parchment/baking paper the size of the bottom of the tin is often necessary. it can be hard to tell what will stick and what won't, so baking paper is a good safeguard.

oven thermometers are really useful if it's giving you trouble getting to the right temperature. you can get them pretty inexpensively at most stores that sell kitchen supplies.

This would be an awesome cake for trifle. Like seriously maybe better than cake cake. I always run into the problem that it's super moist so even though mine turns out of the pans fine, most if the time halfway through the cake it's crumbling a lot.

It's so good though! I made it with cherry jam because raspberry was too expensive, and you can barely taste it (I was afraid it'd be overpowering).
I will definitely try it again, and will not forget to use parchment paper.
