I am an extemely novice baker, having just started. I grew up on fast food and baked goods from the bakery.
To start, I am using mixes. Figure I'll start there, and work my way up.
When I bake the cake, I end up with a huge dome effect, which while I expect is normal in most cases, my cakes are coming up with even more dome effect than would be expected.
Is there a way to reduce this effect? What pans should I use to try to reduce this. Is this a result of using one large pan instead of two smaller round pans? I am using a large round pan and cooking the entire cake in there.
Any suggestions for this novice are greatly appreciated.
