Lindsay cut these towel strips for me (from here on out called “cake strips”) and gave them to me as a little gift. Here’s how to use them: wet with water, wrap around cake pans and attach with safety pin.
Why would you want to dress your cake pans in a pretty pink towel? Well the cakes stay moist around the edges AND, as you can see from my picture, they stay flat! No big dome in the center of the cake. I am SO HAPPY to have learned this little trick.
You can buy cake strips (just Google ‘cake strips’)…but why spend money when you can just cut up an old towel and use a safety pin?
On a related note….I have pictures of the finished product on my camera. More on that later…
PS – Neither Lindsay or I have ever had a cake strip catch on fire. They ARE dry by the end, but have never had issues. I guess what I’m saying is it seems pretty safe…but if your cake strips light up, well, consider this my statement of “This Week for Dinner is not liable for cake strip fires.” Honestly, you should be FINE. How’s that for a disclaimer? My attorney would be so proud.
