To prevent batter from overflowing in the oven, fill cake pans no more than half full to allow for rising during baking.
To know when your cake is done cooking, insert a toothpick in center. If the toothpick comes out clean, your cake is done. Don't have a toothpick? A wooden skewer or an uncooked piece of spaghetti will work.
Want to add a little boost of flavor to your cake batter? Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or flavored extract to either your cake mix or frosting to give it an extra kick.
When it’s time to decorate your cake, use Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper underneath the cooled cake. The wax paper catches any excess drops of frosting and sprinkles. Simply remove the wax paper and your cake plate is clean.
