I want to offer to make a cake for dh's grandma's suprise 80th b-day later this year, I would probably borrow mil's 18 inc round cake pan and do 2 layers.
What is the best way to bake i?. (I have flour nails but no heating cores)

Make sure you insert a circle of parchment paper for getting the cake out painless, then 2 flower nails are fine, make sure you greased them well. I use easy bake from wilton and if the recipie calls for 350, use 325 and I also use those metalic wrap around them, the ones you soak in water first.
And no problem.

if its truely an 18" round pan and not the half round, make sure it fits in your oven (and on your oven rack since some have a lip in the back)

I think I would even bake low than 325. When I bake a 16" round or square I bake at 315. It always bakes nice and level.

It is an 18 inch round pan, there isn't a lip on the racks, and it holds 18 inch pizza pans. I will probably do a wasc/wasc variation. Will a washed soup can work as a heating core?
