Promotes even cooking and level cakes. Add a cake tester. (I like a very thin one.) Test you cake before the end of the stated cook time (cook time 30 min., start checking at 20 min). Everyone raves that my cakes are so moist. I bake a lot, so I have 4 sets of these in different sizes. I have had them for 8 years and only 2 may need replacing soon. Originally mine had a non-padded tab of the silver fabric to use to pin the 2 end together. Over time the tab wore off, making it more difficult to attach the 2 ends. I use a large T pin to attach mine; however, it is more difficult without the tab. I would definitely look for the new cake strips that have Velcro.

I was skeptical when I saw these in the Baker's Catalogue but was looking for someway to have brownies and cakes cook evenly - without the dried out, hard edges. These are like magic! Cakes layers are evenly proportioned (no raised centers) and brownies are rich soft no matter where it was in the pan. Easy to use - reusable. I have had mine for 4 years now and won't bake without them.

I've been using these strips for years. Simply wet them, lightly wring out excess water and wrap them around your cake pans. Your cakes will brown evenly and will not dome. These can be washed in the washing machine.
