Ever baked a cake and expected to have it come out level and perfect, when it really rises too much in the middle and has that ugly dome look? There's an easy way to fix that. Take a towel (one that you can cut up), and make sure it is long so that it can be wrapped around the outside of the cake pan. Cut the towel long ways and fold it in half like a hot dog. Damp the towel in water and make sure its not dripping wet. Wrap the towel around the outside of the cake pan as tight as you can, and pin the ends together (make sure it's really tight). Fill the cake pan with the batter and bake. Check the towel's wetness every now and then. If the towel is dry, then wet it again (it shouldn't really get dry. depends if the towel is thin). The cake should come out level.
