Baking a large cake can be tricky. You want to make sure that the entire cake is cooked thoroughly and evenly. Nothing is more frustrating than pulling a cake out of the oven that is burnt on the sides but still jiggly in the middle! Last week I baked a large cake for a bridal shower and in order to assure an even bake, I placed a flower nail in the middle. This was the first time I used this technique and it worked like a charm!
