AHello. So we all try so hard to get our cakes to come out of the oven nice and level and baked evenly. Right? Well I have a hamburger and fries cake I would like to do. I have read lots of posts about making you cake bake level and flat.. But how do I bake a 8" round cake and get the dome to rise evenly? So it looks like. Hamburger bun. I am not planning on covering it in BC so I want it to look as much like a bun as possible.

My thought would be to cook at 375? Maybe to get it to rise faster? Or maybe I need a pan?

any thoughts? Thanks

A higher temp would certainly help it dome more. Just be careful that it bakes all the way through and that the outersides aren't burning in the process.

Use a lightweight pan.

Apreheat the oven to 425. Put the cake in, and immediately reduce the temp to 325. Bake until done. I do muffins this way and they get beautiful domes. AND/OR let your cake batter rest for 30 min or even longer after you mix it and before baking. Resting the batter can make it rise higher and more evenly. http://www.sprinklefingers.com/post/456765685/let-it-rest-seriously
