[Sandwich Cake Q&A and Tips]

1. What size baking pan is used?

The baking pan used is 28x28.


2. Should I use oilcloth or parchment paper? How to make oilcloth transparent?

It is recommended to use oilcloth, as parchment paper may wrinkle and is not as suitable for creating a smooth surface. If your oilcloth is not very transparent, you can lightly grease the surface with oil, similar to how paper becomes transparent when soaked in oil.


3. How to use digital templates?

After saving the digital template, print it on A4 paper with a printer. Place the template under the baking oilcloth. Print the pattern to fit your baking pan, for example, mine is 28x28, so the pattern is about 26.


4. Do I need to bake the hand-painted batter before using it?

After creating the hand-painted pattern, refrigerate it until ready to use.


5. When should I remove the oilcloth?

It's generally best to remove the oilcloth while it's still hot to keep the pattern intact.
