Have any of you every made your own cake release? I used a recipe I found off the internet.

1 cup of shortening
1 cup of flour
3/4 cup of vegetable oil

I've always used Wilton's cake release. I've never tried the above recipe and was wondering if anyone else has. I have a wedding cake on the 28th of this month to do.. I think I will try a practice cake before then and see if this stuff will work.. if anyone has used their own mixture, please let me know .. and if it's close to the recipe I found and mixed... thanks!

Yes, i use my own cake release, but with 1/2c oil, works great for me. You'll love and it saves you money to spend on other little decorating gems.

Thanks cakes-r-us .. It's rather expensive to buy Wilton's brand all the time .. I've been doing a lot of cakes lately and was trying to save some money .. thanks again!

The recipe I have doesn't call for a specific amount, just equal parts flour, veg. oil and Crisco, so you can make a small amount (it goes a long way) or a large amount depending on your needs.
