How to bake a flat top cake!

If you are wanting a flat top cake so you can decorate it, here is how!!

Put your cake batter into a "complete" cool oven. Set your oven heat to 250 degrees, 10 minutes later increase the oven temperature by 50 degrees. Ten minutes later, set the oven temperature to the correct setting for your recipe!!

This does a great job at stopping the big dome effect!!
