Wilton Bake Even Strips
I don't remember where I heard about these first, but I ordered these about 6 months ago and I am in love!! The do exactly what the name states, they help the cake bake evenly and most of all it keeps the cake from getting that "dome" shape on top. This is immensely helpful when you want to stack layers and ice them; there is no need to slice the dome off, loosing yummy cake, and then creating a ton of crumbs that get all in your icing!
All you have to do is soak them in cold water and wrap them around the cake pan, pin them with the pin it comes with, bake the cake and Voila! a perfectly flat cake that is ready and easy to ice. I have no idea how it works, but it does!
There are several sizes for different cake pan sizes but I just have the small set; perfect for 9" cake pans which is what I normally use.
I am currently making my Banana Chocolate cake for a friend so I snapped a few photos of the cakes when I pulled them out of the oven. Proof that it works!
