HOW DO I MAKE THE EDGES OF MY CAKES SOFTER? THEYRE REALLY CRISPY.. AND IVE TRIED COVERING THE EDGES W FOIL AND THAT MAY HELP SOME BUT NOT A LOT. I USUALLY CUT THE EDGES WITH SCISSORS TO REMOVE THEM BCUZ I DONT LIKE CRISPY EDGES...
See I have great results with Baker's Joy. I also use Magic Line pans and baking strips on the outside of the pans. If I use another brand of baking spray or just shortening and flour then I get the crusty edges. Also some scratch recipes can tend to have crusty edges if there's a lot of sugar in the recipe.
Something I learned by accident, Put the cake under a cake dome once it cools to the touch. It softens the cake edges and makes it really moist.
I let my cakes cool for about 15 minutes then wrap them in a layer of plastic wrap. The warmth of the cake is trapped in the plastic wrap so it softens the whole cake and the moisture boost is a plus! Keep wrapped until ready to use.
