pointy top cakes

In her recipe for a Lemon Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, Carla Lalli Music uses a method she calls "reverse creaming" that she says will reduce the aeration of the butter and result in a more tender cake (due to less gluten development) with a denser crumb (less aeration) that rises evenly, with no dome.  Obviously not the thing if you are looking for super light and airy but could be worth a try if it suits your goals. 


A video of Carla making the cake is available here on YouTube.  Below the video, there's a link to a page where you can download a pdf of the recipe.  It's from her recent book, That Sounds So Good
