Hi all,

I know this has been talked about before, but I haven't hit on the right search question to find the link.

I have 3" pans and need to increase the height to 4 or 4.5 isn't there a way to do that with parchment paper?

Has anyone done this successfully and could share how to do it???

Thanks a bunch,

brush shortening on cakepan and cut long strips of parhcment so that when you press them against the sides of the pan they are the 4-4.5 height you an extra inch and a half tall.This is how I have made my cakes taller..the only drawback is sometime when you flip the cake out.. the top muffin..Extra expanded cake will sometimes break off and not become sturdy..

Thank you so much!!!

I use a pound cake so I hope it will hold up.

Thanks again.

The pound cake should hold up...I think I tried a regular mix...I was trying an experiment but it didn't work...
