How to get those perfectly flat cake layers

We all want a perfect cake with crisp cake edges and super fl at top. It makes you look like such a probaker and it makes decorating a breeze. So what’s the secret? It’s simple and anyone can do it – the secret is baking strips!

Also known as cake strips or magic strips, you can make them at home or buy them pre-made. They’re designed to correct uneven baking by applying an insulating layer around the outside of a cake tin. Without insulation from the oven’s heat, the edges bake more quickly, while the centre tends to dome, crack or rise quickly before collapsing.
