Cake dome

Please help how can I stop my cakes doming in the middle

Do you use the strips on the sides of the pans? That seems to work for me.
No license or insurance. Put lead wires in cakes, never wash hands, cake boards are used cardboard. No contracts cause I can't read or write. No lawyer cause I'm judgment proof. I bake with old mix boxes found behind Walmart. Now about my question

Lower the oven temperature a little.

I also use Wilton baking strips. My cakes never dome. The one's I have need to be secured with straight pins, I have seen one's which close with velcro, I bet those are easier to work with.

Velcro! Oh My Goodness! Do you think I can sew Velcro onto my Wilton bake even strips and not affect their effectiveness?

If I can, I will be ecstatic! Yes, even more exclamation points ecstatic! The light bulb is going off over here, folks. Velcro! No more shoving those pins into my fingers, bending pins, using multiple pins, etc.... Velcro!

LOL....I've been so desperate as to use paper clips to hold my baking strips together. And a friend of mine was driven to improvising strips by wrapping a strip of damp cotton cloth in tin foil and wrapping it around the cake pan. Boy, do we all love our baking stips!

I use paper clips, as I lost the pins right away. Wouldn't Velcro melt? Isn't one side plastic?

There's stick on Velcro, which has an adhesive on the back, and sew on Velcro, which I think it made of fabric. Perhaps the grippy side is plastic, though.

I make my own baking strips out of folded paper towel encased in alfoil - hold together with small bulldog clips

I got cake dome every time I bake in the 6x3 inches pans and strips don`t help. I need any advise.

lowering the oven temp is a lot easier than wrestling with cake strips thumbs_up.gif

This works for me: Bake @ 325 degrees and when cake is done remove from oven and lay a dry dish cloth on top. Press gently all over top until the cake is level. Let rest a few minutes and then remove from cake pan onto cooling rack. Be careful it will be hot with steam while you are pressing.

I bake 350F. How low it should be? 325 or 300?

Depends ont he cake, but around 340 works for me. If I have a full oven I'll raise the temp if I'm opening the door a lot to take things in and out.

I do lower my oven. I also use the rose nails. I still get more dome that I like. I've got the third of 5 cakes I'm baking today in the oven right now. The bake even strips help a lot and there's barely any dome.
