cake pan prep question

geminigirl | Jan 29, 2009 03:54 AM

Hi, I was reading my newest Gourmet last night and was interested in making the chocolate torte, but then started reading the pan prep directions:

Preheat oven to 300&Deg;F with rack in middle. Wrap outside of cake pan in plastic wrap, then wrap tightly in a layer of foil.

My first thought was wraping a pan in plastic wrap, even though it's covered by foil, can't be a good idea...won't the plastic wrap melt???

What do you think, a misprint perhaps and should I just skip this step and do the foil wrap only? thanks
