My cakes always look a little off and slightly favoring a side. I use an oven thermometer so my oven is really at 350. However, when I take the cake out the oven one side is always, always higher than the other. As soon as the cake comes out the oven I use paper towels to push it down and try to even out the cake. I mold the oven hot cake sort of. It looks fine and all I would have to do is remove very little crowing and frost. I let it cool completely, wrap plastic and put in the freezer.
However, when I take the cake out the next night to work on trim, fill and frost when its all put together it is off. I use a lever from home depot so I know that the cake is balance and level but it looks like flat on one side and contour on the other. Any idea how I can fix this?
