Flat Top Cake layers

Take an old dish towel and cut it into strips. Wet the strips and squeeze them out. Once you have poured your batter in the pan and patted the bottom to remove air bubbles take a wet towel strip and wrap it around the cake pan and tuck the end into the wrapped strip. (If they are not long enough attach them together with safety pins.) This will allow the cake to cook evenly and will give you more of a flat top to decorate.

Temp for Baking Cake

Temp for Baking Cake

I took a cake decorating class and was taught to drop the oven temp down to about 265 F (I was actually taught 130C, I live in Australia and we are metric) and bake the cake or cupcakes a bit longer testing til done for a much moister cake. Also I made the French Vanilla Cake mix and instead of using water I used milk and I added an extra egg. I had rave reviews from all. No could believe it was a "box: cake.


Cutting Brownies

Cutting Brownies

I cut my brownies with a plastic knife, if you use plastic it doesn't rip the brownies. Also if you cut the brownies when they are still slighty warm, they cut easier. Good Luck, it works for me.
