Cake Baking Helpers

To guarantee even baking in the center of cakes, use the Heating Core in pans that are 12" or larger. It's like a pan within a pan. Grease and flour it inside and out, insert batter to the same level as you will in the larger pan, place in the center of the larger pan and fill that pan with batter. After baking, remove the core, remove the cake from the core and plug the hole with it.

For perfectly level cakes, use the Magi-Cake strips. Saturate the fabric strips in water, squeeze out excessive moisture, wrap strip around outside of pan, place in oven and bake. When done, let strips dry out and use again and again.

A professional method of greasing pans is with our Baker's Joy. Because it contains flour and oil, simply spray Baker's Joy to get a nice, thin, even coating of flour and oil. Fat free.

The easy way to remove hot cake pans from your oven is with the Pan Gripper. Sturdy and heat resistant, it stands up to commercial applications.

Use Cake Markers to be sure you will have enough pieces of the same size to serve everyone. Just score the icing and cut along the lines. Alternately, double the number of servings by cutting along the lines and also halfway between them. Or halve the number of servings by cutting along every 2 lines.

Pan liners, such as parchment paper and silicone baking mats, can also play a big role in making life easier in your baking kitchen.

For consistent results, make sure that your ingredient measurements are accurate by using a scale, instead of measuring cups, whenever possible. And don't forget to keep an accurate thermometer in your oven.
