If you put in the pan, pointing up, pour in your batter it will help bake the center of the cake more even with the exterior.

I generally use two for pans over 10". And I always use parchment, so I put the nail into the paper before I drop it in the pan.

I use flower nails as well for larger cakes. I would also use 2 for this size cake. I just spray my Bakers Joy on it or whatever pan release you use. It might move around if you pour in the batter too fast. I usually pour around the nails first so they don't move as much. I like the idea of sticking them through the parchment! Cool idea, JoAnn!
