Hey CC people!!
I have seen in a couple of recipes that some of you place a "cake nail(s)" in the center of a cake to help it rise evenly. Are you all talking about the nail that you use for Wilton roses? big flat circle head and spike? I have a Wilton 7 cake nail.....would that work for a 9x13x2 inch pan? Appreciate any help!!
yes that will work fine, sometimes for larger cakes I use two nails spaced in the pan
Do you put the nail in with the point up or the point down facing the bottom of the pan?
Flat side down, before you pour in the batter, and after you grease and flour the pan... don't forget to grease and flour the nail first too.
PERFECT!! Thanks! I will get right to baking the cake then!!!
