Congratulations. I do the same thing but with good quality aluminium foil with my 3" pans. I cut the aluminium foil for the sides of 4 1/2" height and did not use any on the bottom of the pan. Fill the pan with the batter up at its border (3"'). The additional 1 1/2" inches of the aluminium foil works as a "continuation/wall" of the pan and I get a 4" inches high cake when done. You can do this with any pan no matter its height and get a cake with an additional inch higher.

And here I've been all this time assuming that everyone lines their cake tins with parchment, making a collar in the process...I never knew 'muffin top' was an issue. icon_rolleyes.gif

I just want to add that it really doesn't matter how high above the tin the collar reaches, mine are however high they end up...anything from one inch up to three inches (the only thing I worry about in terms of the collar height is making sure it's not touching the top element in my oven...don't want my cake catching fire! icon_biggrin.gif )

Good morning all,

First of all, I apologise if my question seems silly, but I am a complete newbie to baking!

May I ask Mikel79, what are the "prongs" sticking out of your cake mixture? Is this something I should be using?

Many thanks
