For larger, taller cakes:
Bake two round cakes in Reynolds® Bakeware 8" Round Cake Pans using your favorite cake recipe. For inspiration, check out our collection of decadent desserts.
When your cakes are done baking, and a toothpick can be inserted and removed cleanly, flip them each upside down onto a cooling rack so the cake tops are flat. If your cakes cool and still have a rounded top, carefully use a long serrated knife to slice a thin strip from each cake, leveling the tops. Once completely cool, remove your Reynolds® Bakeware Pans from the cakes. Cooling upside down will flatten out the cake top and prevent a dome shaped top.
Baking is scientific, and requires ingredient precision to reach the best results. For example, if you combine all your ingredients and later realize your eggs needed to be beaten separately, your cake could come out mealy.
