I am only a baking novice and my cakes were always bulging in the middle. I saw these baking strips on a youtube baking lesson and thought Id give them a try. They are terrific and my latest cakes are flat on top and baked evenly through. Very happy with my purchase.
I like these. I wish they came with more pins but I used my same style quilting pins and they worked well.... I like these because they keep the sides of the cake from burning and getting too dark. Also, the tops of the cake stay flatter when using these strips. I took the longest strip and cut it so fit my 6" pan, stitching the ends closed to match the existing finished edges.... Writing with a permanent marker on the strip helps match the pan. I bought an extra set just so I could use them on all my pans...

I have had to use handmade strips made of foil and paper towels, but these will be very handy. I am glad to have them. They make good gifts, too. They really do work to creat a flat cake layer and that cuts down on preparation time when baking.
