I've tried the layer cake, but somehow the top of each layer don't want to brown. It will puff up and separate from the layer underneath it. If I leave it to brown, it will become dry and ugly. I put my pan in the middle layer. What did I do wrong?

Adehhhh u work as my promoter eh?? hahaha.. ya lar ya lar.. i know u still heart pain when i charged it too cheap.. its the passion my dear! :o)

Did u bake it using grill mode for every layer?? i hv never encounter something like that.. first layer u hv to bake it using upper and lower fire for 10mins.. then for every other layer u use grill mode and bake it for 5 to 7 mins.. depending on ur oven.. last layer u bake it using upper and lower fire for 10 mins which consist of 7 mins on lower and upper.. and 3 mins on grill mode.. thats it.. and oh yes.. i place my baking pan on middle layer too.
