Need a fast answer and I know there is a thread here somewhere but dont have time...should i use a rose nail in center of cake when I bake to make sure bakes evenly or is it a small enough cake size that I won't have a problem? Thanks!!!

I use a rose nail in every cake I bake since I tend to overfill slightly so I can just cut across the top of the pan and know it's level.
I seem to just use rose nails for heating cores anymore instead of what they are meant for. icon_lol.gif

Actually it is unnecessary in any size cakeicon_smile.gif I have baked for over 25 yrs and haven't used any kind of heat conductor.
Just lower your temp and bake for a long time.......simple.

Now, having said that, it doesn't hurt to use them - it's just not necessaryicon_smile.gif
