I would use two about 2 inches apart from the center in opposite directions. It really works great!

I love the flower nail technique!! If it's a round I would use three. If it's square then I would use 4 but like I said "I LOVE the technique" so maybe sometimes I over do it. icon_wink.gif
(Also just a bit of info, I have done the "grease and flour" method and just sprayed "Pam" cooking spray on them and both methods have worked great to get it back out of the cake. I prefer the "Pam" just because it's a lot easier)

For a 14", I use 3 flower nails in a triangular shape spaced evenly from each other and the outer pan. I also spray pam on the pan and nails, place a 14" round parchment paper down over the nails (nails poke through the paper), and then spray the paper and nails again. I figure I would rather over do it on a cake this size than under do and have the cake stick and then fall apart as I remove it from the pan. I have never had a problem using this technique.
