Do you use bake even strips on this size?
Baking in a few minutes and totally unsure...
Thanks!

Some only use it for larger pans. I use them for all pans. They perform the same function on a 6" as they do on larger pans, which is to not have the sides set too soon, forcing all the rising to happen in the center, causing a dome.

I use them for all my pans but I sometimes will use striped towels (I buy cheap dish towels for this)I cut my towels into strips and let them soak in water and wrap the around my 6 inch cake pan I pin them on just as I would do the baking strips my small cakes don't come out as gummy around the edges as they would if I doubled the baking strips

I don't use them on any of my pan 12" and under. I don't have any issues not doing so myself.

I don't ever use them on anything smaller than 10" and don't always use them on 10"'s

Hmmm...well, I did it on a test one and while it took longer (makes sense) it seems to have come out OK. I now have 2 in, with strips, so hopefully it will all work out.
Thanks for the responses; appreciate it!

same here. I don't care what size the pan is, there's a baking strip around each and every one of them.

I recently learned a new trick. Using a metal flower nail in the center of the pan and baking the cake cooks it evenly. I have been using on all size cakes even on a couple of sheet cakes and with the larger sheet pans I used 2 nails. I was quite surprised how well it works.
