I was told that instead of buying the Wilton baking strips that go around the pans to give you a flat topped cake you can cut a towel, wet it and use it instead for the same affect. Has anyone tried this before? Did it work?
Yes, I've tried using a towel before and it does work. However, I did ended up purchasing the baking strips because they are easier to use on larger pans, in my opinion.
Hey Kristilee........WELCOME to our sweet corner of the internet You will find a wealth of information all about baking, decorating and serving cakes, cookies, and cupcakes.......even a few other things thrown in for good measure! Now on to your ?.........
Yep, works just fine Make sure you soak the toweling well, then lightly squeeze off the excess water so it's not dripping and pin it around the outside of the pan.
I used strips made of towels for about 6 months, til I got tired of messing with them...hard to use on pans that are very big at all. So, I used Michael's 40% off coupons and bought the bake even strips. Much nicer!
