Using a knife is not the only way to level a cake . . . well, it’s arguablely the best way to level the cake AFTER the baking process, but to cut down on cake “waste”, try out these Bake Even Strips!
All you do is soak them in water for a couple of minutes, and then wrap them around your baking pan! The ones that I have fit around my 8″ and 9″ baking pans and they seriously work wonders!
Basically, and I am NOT a scientist, the strips cause the heat to be more evenly distributed throughout the pan, so the edges don’t bake so much faster than the middle. I’ll admit, I was a doubter when I first was recommended these, but after my first use of them, I was convinced. They totally work and basically eliminate the rounded middle of cakes. Pretty cool, but if you don’t believe me, check out the video and see for yourself.
