I am making a 11x 15 cake and wanted to know if i should use a flower nail or bake even strips? Or both?
If flower nails, then how many?
And if baking strips, then which one should i buy ? Small or large? I have never used bake even strips.

Baking strips and two nails would be what I use. For the strips, you can use short ones and pin them together, or get long ones. It depends on the size cake you usually make. I have a buch of smaller ones an one set of big ones.

I have never used either. Just baked at 325 for a while. Good luck!

With strips & several nails, I love the way the sheet cakes come out--no hump to cut off and very evenly done.

I agree with the strips, two flower nails and baking at 325. That is what I would do.

As far as the strips. The package of two would work if you pin them together (or use those metal binder clip things). The package of four has four different sizes and has one that works with a lot of the larger cake pans.

Ditto here. Two flower nails and baking strips. I learned a long time ago its better to be safe than sorry. Before I was told about using flower nails & baking strips, I was sorry a lot!
