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.

Worked Well

When I used the Red Velvet cake mix, I used 1/2 cup of sour cream, and mixed it with enough (real dairy) half and half to equal 11/4 cups to replace the water. I also added two extra TBS of cocoa powder, and one half TBS of vinegar. Imade cupcakes and they turned out wonderful!


Keep cakes from sticking to cake pans

Keep cakes from sticking to cake pans

I always line my cake and brownie pans with parchment paper. Even teflon coated pans will sometimes stick if you're baking a dense cake such as chocolate. Parchment paper will allow your cake to slide right out. Guaranteed!
