I was hoping I could get some tips for cooking with the larger cake pans. Besides shaped pans I have only use 8/9 inch rounds. I am making a baby shower cake next week and would appreciate any tips and tricks you guys could give me. Hopefully I will get it right the first time. Hope I didnt get myself in over my head !
ps I am making a variation of the ducky cake in the wilton 2010 year book. The pans they used are square but i dont have enuf guts to do that yet ! I am going to make mine round.
Bake on 325 and use a flower nail in the middle of the pan for a heating core. Make sure you've got something...cooling grid, cookie sheet, etc...big enough to turn the cake out onto when you're ready to take it out of the pan.
ahh see I wouldnt have thought of the nail in the center ! Thanks !
I use the bake even strips.
I found this tutorial on making our own baking strips
and here is a video tutorial on baking strips using a bath towel
Meh, I've never used a nail or a heating core. Not ever. I'd bake no higher than 315, though.
