ATitle basically says it all. I used the nails that usually work to keep my cake levels, but not this time. Not sure if it is a different recipe or different oven as I moved and now have a gas oven. Either way - it is hump day. So do I freeze then level?

hi DebinD, what a bummer.  I would definitely freeze uncut, and just level them when defrosted. Hope you get your oven sorted out.

AThanks. After I flipped them over to cool things look much better. Fingers crossed!

AI've done it both ways, I actually like to level and then freeze but either works!

AI always torte and level after freezing. I make scratch cakes and find that chocolate is pretty much ready right out of the freezer. Other flavors tend to need about 10-15 minutes of defrost time.
