AI just bought them and wanted to know if anyone had any advice? As far as how much to fill them and how many flower nails to use right now I just just 3 on an 8" and 2 on a 6" and it's just not cooking :( I think I used to much batter this sucks

I fill mine 2/3 full and only use a flower nail on 12 inch and larger cakes.

I love my Fat Daddio pans :grin:

Have you checked that your oven is coming up to temperature?

AThanks Melanie so I forgot to mention that the pans I'm using is the mad hatter pans are those the ones your talking about too?

I have those pans as well and I use them the same as I do the regular rounds and squares.

I only flower nail the 12 inch.

I am thinking they may be over filled. 

When I use my mad hatters I fill to about 2/3 of the shallow side and I use my bake even strips on them.

I also use my regular cake recipes, I never use then with a carrot cake or anything very dense.

I worry they will have trouble cooking thoroughly.

I hope this helps

AYeah I think I over filled mine but I will keep this in mind and maybe tweak my cake recipe... Thanks
