Hi ya'll!

So I have some bake even strips and they work so, so well with my oval and square pans. However, on a round pan, I still get a serious 'hump' on the top! I've tried having them soaking, dripping wet, having them just damp, having them soaked and wrung out...I think I've tried everything!

Is there some kind of trick I'm missing? Like I said it works wonderfully on my other shapes so I don't think it's a total user error...

Any help is appreciated!

the only thing i can think of is perhaps your round pans are from a slightly different material? I know that I have a Wilton round pan that bakes totally different than my other pans. icon_mad.gif

otherwise...to me, a hump (as long as it's just a 'hump' and not a 'mountain') is no big deal. Just cut it off! icon_biggrin.gif

They are all just wilton aluminum (can't spend the big bucks yet) so I'm not sure it's that.

Oh I do not mind just cutting it off (then I get to eat it!) but it is quite alot of cake going to waste since it's a pretty substantial hump.

If it is just a small hump, I usually just take a clean towel and gently smoosh it back down and hold it in place until it cools a bit. Of course, that means not snacking for me on extra cake, but...my butt doesn't need any more cake snacking.

Try putting a flower nail upside down in the pan before pouring in the batter. It will make the cake cook more evenly and help eliminate the hump.

Not sure why I didn't think of this haha...thanks so much!! I will give it a try this weekend! Should a grease and flour it? Just grease it?

I use pan release but grease should work too.
