...Does anyone have any tips for baking cakes evenly so the centre doesn't rise?
Wrap the outside of your cake tin in a few layers of damp towelling. That encourages the outside to stay cooler and let it cook evenly so the cake stays flat on top.
I cut 3 pieces from an old handtowel to the right length to wrap outside the cake tin and I fasten them on with a safety pin after I wet them just before baking.
(Beware of cake mixes that fill the tin though, they need to dome or else they'll mushroom over the edge at the top. I learnt that one the hard way the other day
Rainbow cakes are awesome, but it cost me a heap for the dyes too. Worth it
