Who wants flat cake?.........I do! I want a flat cake!!!
It may sound strange and a waste of time to some, but for me baking my kids birthday cakes 3 a year, year after year cutting the round top off my domed cakes to make them flat I wondered if the old wives tale I heard years ago actually worked???
Those old wives say to wet a tea towel, wrap it around the cake tin and secure it with a safety pin!
Well finally I remembered in time, before popping it in the oven, to give it a go.
I couldn't believe it actually works!! The top did not rise a bit and was perfectly flat Yippee!!! No more *ahem crooked trimming for my kids birthday cakes and I can move straight on to decorating.
All you home bakers out there have got to give this a go, and let me know how you go.....
