how do I use the flower nail to make my 14" round cake bake evenly and all the way through? I've come across some threads on this but can't find them now? thanx in advance for any help!
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!
