how to make a cake not "dome" up?

Recommended Posts

You don't need to buy cake strips. In cake decorating classes, we were taught to just tear up an old bath towel into strips the depth of the pan and a bit longer than its circumference. Soak it in water till thoroughly saturated and then use a safety pin to secure it around the outside of the cake pan before baking. There is an evil astrological Baking Goddess that rewards your first attempts just to get you to try to duplicate it so she can send lightning bolts into your oven to punish your self-assurance and dignity. Respond by just chopping up the damn thing and turning it into a trifle with custards and liqueurs and whipped creams.
