I am baking my first 15" round cake. I am concerned that the edges will cook faster than the center.

Any suggestions on making sure the cake bakes evenly.

I am also doing a 12", 9" and 6" but not too worried about the 9 and 6 inch cakes.

thanks for any advice,

Just lower your oven temp. You can also bake more 1" layers rather than a deeper 2 or 3" and it will cook very evenly.

Use 2-3 inverted flower nails to help distribute the heat more evenly. Wrap in baking strips, as well as lowering temperature to 325.

Have you tried using those baking strips that go around the cake you are baking? I did it with a 16" round and it worked great. Make sure you wet the strip first before putting the cake in the oven......I love using those strips it was the best investment I made and most of the cakes come out leveled.

Good Luck. icon_biggrin.gif
