I bought this pan you can make mini cakes with the shape of bears. so cute.

it said it was nonstick but i still greased it with shortening. well my cakes stuck!

should i have floured it too? i managed to save 4 of them but the rest are... *sigh*

how to avoid this next time? please...

I use bakers joy spray and, knock on wood, have never had a problem. I used it when I made mini heart cakes.

I've never used the cake release. It's just a baking spray, it's with the Pam and other cooking sprays at the grocery store.

I also use bakers joy on all my pans and haven't had any problems at all. It's so easy because it has the flour already in it.

I use homemade pan release and nothing ever sticks even in pans with lots of nooks and crannies. I use a pastry brush to get in everywhere.

I also use the baker's joy and haven't had any problems either. I won't bake without it anymore!!! icon_biggrin.gif

i use the pam for baking- has flour in it. Have never had a problem, even with detailed character cakes.

I have to agree... I never could get a cake to come out of my bundt pan cleanly, no matter how well I greased and floured it or even with cake release (which I use on all of my "regular" pans).. but with bakers Joy... cakes slide right out of my bundt pan.


*** Sorry, meant bakers Pam... guess Joy would be a little icky wouldn't it!!! icon_eek.gif
