Hi all!

When I wrap my sheet cake pan with a bake even strip and pin the two ends together, the strip "pulls" away from my pan. The strip is attached, but it is not touching the metal pan????...

When I use the strips on round pans I don't have this problem.

What am I doing wrong??

If your sheet cake pans don't have straight sides, the bake even strips can gap. (This happens when I use them on my glass sheet cake pans.)

I just attach them to the top of the pan as best I can and leave it at that. icon_smile.gif

If anyone else has found a better way, I'd love to hear it. thumbs_up.gif

I've run into the same problem. It's hard to get them quite tight enough to stay put. I just do as mentioned above get them on as best I can and stick them in.

Thank you!

I have Magic Line pans. Not going to get any straighter than that. =)

I appreciate your help....

Try just adding a pan of water at the bottom of your oven when you're baking. It does the same thing as the strips. Much less messy and alot cheaper.

Are you putting them on before you have the batter in the pan? I've noticed that if you turn the pan on it's side and really PULL the strip tightly, then it will not gap. Also, use two pins and push one pin into the strip in one direction and the other pin from the other direction. That sort of locks it in place and doesn't allow it to slip.
