Tips

How to bake even cakes

How to bake even cakes

My tip for baking even cakes is to take a large new bath towel and cut it into strips and soak in cold water; then take the strips and tie it around your cake pan and place into oven and bake, your cakes will be even everytime.


"Moister" Cakes
