Hey ,

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 !

Thanks Colleen

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.

Meh, I've never used a nail or a heating core. Not ever. I'd bake no higher than 315, though.
