Humpday Help; Flat Top Cakes made Easy

IMG_1491

With all the ‘naked’ cakes around these days, I went on a mission to find out the best way to get a  flat top cake.

The big secret is that most bakers cut the tops off the cakes to make them level. I bet that’s not the answer you were expecting! I did however find a tip that I tried. While it did work, my cake was not completely flat, but I would attribute that to my own haste in trying to get it done.

Here is the post on the tip from A Cozy Kitchen . It involves a strip of towel, some water and a couple of pins.

I personally have no problem with the domes and cutting them off to level the cakes, mainly because it gives my kids something to snack on and out of my hair while I do what needs to be done.

Let me know if you try this trick out and how it goes!

Happy Baking!
