How long do I need to cool a cake baked with a flower nail in it before flipping it over on a cake board? Is is better to cool the pan on a rack until it is cool to the touch, or turn it over on a cake board right away?

All my cakes come out from the tin after 5-10 minutes coming out from the oven. And let the cake cool on a cooling rack. icon_smile.gif

Yup, standard 10 mins cooling in the pan then flip the cake out of the pan, remove the parchment and then the nail and then flip back over to cool the rest of the way before leveling. I actually use two cooling racks for the flipping.

I actually put the nail under the parchment when baking so that when I turn it over I don't have to remove the parchment. Just pull out the nail. I like having the parchment on the cake to help "hold" it together while moving it around. I just remove the parchment as I stack the layers.
