Tips For Baking a Flat, Even Cake

This is in response to baking a flatter cake. All you have to do is either torte the mound off, torting means to cut the cake in several layers or just the top or in half horizontally (not up and down). Or just turn over with the cake bottom up after cooling about 10 minutes, you will have a perfectly flat cake all the time.

If you do not want to use the wet rags around your cake pan, (this only works with round, square or oval pans, character pans have to many corners to put wet towels around), put a Pizza stone in the bottom of your oven.

Try to keep it away from the pilot light, like putting it on risers. If you have an old oven, the pizza stone will help to keep an even temperature in an uneven oven.

If you put a pizza stone in your oven and it breaks, leave it there and get another one, this will increase the chances of better - even temperature also.

THANK YOU, thank you! I have wondered for years how to eliminate that big ol' hump on the top of the cake.

I put a small oven safe dish of water in the bottom of the oven when I preheat it and keep it there through the baking time. That is enough moisture for mine to come out flat no matter what shape the pan is. Penny
