Really easy trick to check for oven hot spots... cover a baking sheet in flat slices of white bread, stick them in on 350 until toasted, then check and see if they evenly toasted or if some are darker than others.

(What us lazy people do when we break our oven thermometers and don't want to go to the store :P)

When I worked at Maytag Appliances we used canned biscuits for testing ovens. The browning patterns showed even minor hot spots. But I would never do this at home or people would think I had no life. (Is this the right thread or am I lost in ForumLand?)

BAhahaha!

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Oh. no, never lonely! I stayed home (with my friendly appliances) and baked cakes from scratch.

Hi everyone, thanks for all the advice, as fior this first cake it actually tasted really good from both halves. Made the same recipie again tonight, switched them around and one of the halves was a complete dissaster. One was really really brown and the other a sick pastey colour. So frustrated, and to top it off, the stove is a maytag!!! Ugh!
