I am extremely new to cake decorating and have a very basic question. I have done a few character cakes, along with some regular cakes with thicker batter, and cannot get the middle to cook at the same time as the edges! I end up with dark edges and a soupy middle. I think I saw a piece of equipment you can use to help with this - how do the experts on this site do it? Thanks!!
Baking strips is what you are talking about - I love them on rounds & squares. I think your oven might be up a little high - lower the temp and let it cook low and slow.......325 or so
I agree cowdex, the baking strips are great! For large pans, I also use a heating core, you will get really even results in the larger pan sizes. Happy baking
