Fixing a cake cooked at wrong temperature

I had it at 275 for a while (before I got your advice), so it cooked 50 min @350, 40 min at @275, then I put it up to 300 for 15-20 minutes. I tented foil over it so wouldn't get too toasty.
WE are having it for birthday cake tonight, so I am crossing my fingers.
I made a salted fudge sauce that the NYTimes featured in December (delicious btw), and I am going to take your advice and have that available to pour on/over if it ends up too dry.

Fixing a cake cooked at wrong temperature

Thank you so much! I used a lot of eggs and butter and don't want to waste them.

Fixing a cake cooked at wrong temperature

I am making a pound cake that needs to cook 100 minutes. 50 minutes into it, I realized it should have cooked at 300, not 350.
Can I lower the temperature to 250 for the remaining 50 minutes, and will the cooking even/average out?
Or is it too late?

Thanks!
