Just need some advice on oven temps! When baking larger cakes, 14'/16',
does the oven temp need to be lower? For example, 325 instead of 350 so the sides don't over bake? Thanx in advance!

Yes, for larger sized pans you lower the heat to 325 degrees. From the list I have it looks like anything over 12 inches you lower the heat. I found a chart on the Wilton website, it's called the Party Cake Baking and Cutting Guide, but it lists the oven temps and time for every size/shape pan.

You should definitely lower the temp. My personal room of thumb is 25 degrees lower than the regular temp the cake should be baked at. So if the recipe bakes at 350, I lower it to 325. I have several recipes where I bake them at 325, so for larger cakes, I bake those at 300.

Hope that helps!
