I just got done reading about how if I'm baking a 10 inch or larger cake I need to use a heating core?!?! Is this true? Has anyone had a successful go without using one?!?! Need to know asap!!! Please!!!

I don't use them for 10" rounds or squares. 12", yes, I'll spray a flower nail with nonstick spray and place that upside down in the batter.

Easy now, don't panic.

like 10 inch width? I've baked several cakes in 10-14 in. round pans about 3 inches tall but never use a heating core..... oops? I would think that since I can level and torte them without finding mushy muck, that they've been ok? hmmm.......

I've never used a flower nail for a 12", but I do lower the baking temp to 325 degrees and not had a problem. I suppose I should try using one, and see if it makes a difference.

I never use them. But I know others swear by them. I bake at 325º and don't have a problem.

I've never used them not even for a twelve inch. I even baked 14 inch cake without one.

I don't use them for any size. I would probably consider using them if I made 4 inch deep cakes though.

Thank you all! icon_smile.gif I was freaking out because I have a cake in the oven that's a 10 inch and would probably have a panic attack if I found out that it was all mushy and didn't bake right. lol.
