Please share. I'm getting super nervous about it. I get so excited as I plan but when it comes down to it, I get cold feet.

I'm baking 2 round 14 inchers. The biggest I've baked so far are 9 inches.

Some thoughts:

Do I bake them both at same time or 1 at a time?

If I do bake them both at same time, where in oven? What shelf?

I will be using home made baking strips? around my pan. Is this enough?

Any other tips for a nervous gal?

From my experience - I would bake one at a time. I use baking strips, bake at 325 degrees until done.

I only have one 14" pan, so I have to do mine one at a time. But I do it with a heating core - and yes, 325.

I bake those at 310. No heating core, no strips. That's for a regular oven. (not convection)
