Is a heating core required when baking a 16 in round cake?

I use 3 flower nails to help bake a 16 inch cake.

I use rose nails...they are very inexpensive. Spray your pan, then place the nails upside down in the pan and spray them too. They help distribute the heat evenly throughout the cake, which helps it bake evenly and more level. When you flip the cake over, take a fork and slip the flower nails out. You only get tiny holes in your cake that way.

I'm using three nails and bake even strips tonight for my 16 inchers.
