Item: Regency Evenbake Cake Strips
Overall impression: These insulated strips that attach to the outside of the cake pan do a decent job of baking up level cakes, but we're still not completely sold.
When a few Kitchn editors got together recently to photograph the Kitchn Baking School, Faith brought me a set of these cake strips since she'd heard so much about them. To be honest, I believe that a good cake recipe has the right amount of leavener and should come out fairly level in the first place, but I was also super curious about these strips that supposedly insulate cake pans to produce moist, level cakes. I wanted to see if they would make a difference.
