So I have The wet strips so your cake bakes evenly on the sides. For what size cakes do I use them on? Would I even need them on a 6" cake? or only bigger ones? thanks

I've tried it on a 6inch round and it didn't work out very well for me. I would suggest 8 and larger. But that's my opinion. Too each their own.

I use them on every size. I just wish they would work on shapes like hearts icon_sad.gif

I got soggy too. That's why I wouldn't use it again on a 6 inch round. icon_smile.gif

lol i just threw some 6" in with the strips and they are still soggy. off the strips go and back in the cakes go! hopefully it doesnt ruin them and they will set up. im not sure why i didnt wait until i got a response to decided whether to use them or not: dumb me! thanks!!

I use them mostly in bigger cakes. 10 an up. I dont think it makes a huge difference in smaller ones.

I use them on any size as well. I stopped using them because my really moist cake recipe is getting too moist.

millermom, I have used the strips on shaped pans. You just have to fiddle with them a little and use an extra pin to keep them on. I had a good result using them on a heart shaped pan.

I stopped using them on 4 and 6 inch cakes because they were taking to long to cook and still were to wet when takin out of oven. I also wondered how many people were really using them. Sometimes I'll take the strip off the pan while the cake is still baking (close to the end) because it seems to me they are taking longer with the strips.

That's good to hear. I'll have to play with them some more. I have had good results with them every time on round and square pans. icon_smile.gif
