I almost bought those pans then thought they would be a nightmare to cook with since one side is shallow...and the other is deep.   I have fits trying to bake with the large cupcake pan.   Low temp....flower nails in the deep end...good luck.  I've heard they are not as "topsy" as hand carved topsy turvy cakes.    I hand carve and cut out the angled hole that the top layer sits on.

I did! I have never used it, either way, but I read it bakes really crooked and the top gets dry, so I nipped it in the bud icon_wink.gif you will have to put the top in another pan, because it gets wobbly, and a wire rack would just just dump the whole thing over.

I bought these cake pans and about a month after buying them i was ready to use them for my sons birthday cake. I have NEVER EVER baked a cake from scratch all the way and in anything other than a pyrex 9X13 square. So this was all new. I read about how people were worried about uneven baking then do you cut or just stack yada yada i had no idea these things were issues! I was terrified. So I researched more and more what I ended up doing was putting three flower nails in the 10 two in the 8 and one in the 6. They were face down then i put parchment paper on top of the nail so only the nail part was poking through and filled the ban. I baked the 6 and the 8 at 300 for the first half and 325 for the rest of the cook time and then ten at 315 they came out beautifully. Now I did not carve into the tiers when stacking I used dowels for support under each of the tiers and then at the very end i put a 1/2 inch thick dowel through the center of the cake from the top tier to the bottom tier. And now hours later its in the fridge and hasn't slipped a bit! That set is awesome! I love it. Here is the proof that this really does work I made this cake with absolutely NO knowledge of baking cakes! So good luck and I hope this helps you! Happy baking!
