I'm fairly new here - only about a week now, but I can't get enough! This site is great!
Anyway, I saw in one recipe to place an inverted flowernail into the center of the pan before baking. What does that do?
It helps distribute heat through the middle of the cake, so you end up with less of a dome on the cake and the middle gets done before the sides are overdone. It's especially important with a big cake, and can be used instead of a heating core.
Hmm, you learn something new everyday! Thanks
