Hello! I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix it. When I bake a cake, say in an 8 inch round, and then stack the layers, the aren't flush with each other. It seems some of the layers are just slightly wider than others. I end up having to cut around some of the edges. Any one have this issues or know why it is happening?
Your cake pan/s aren't straight sided, they are tapered from top to bottom.
The result is that the layers don't line up when stacked, but can be trimmed to be straight sided.
Quick fix, use Michael's or Hobby Lobby 40% off coupons to purchase some straight sided pans.
Tip: straight sided pans will NOT nest/fit into one another for storage as do tapered pans.
