My cake stuck to the pan. I followed the directions, greased the sides with shortening and flour and mixed a pound cake and a regular cake mix. It was a disaster. Any suggestions on how to get the cake to release? Thanks in advance.

Did you let it cool before trying to remove it?

With the 3d pans I remove one side right out of the oven, replace it, flip the cake over and then remove the other side.

Yes, I let it cool for about 10 min before I tried to remove the top pan. I will try your way. Thanks.

I was having both some major and minor problems with sticking using Pam and flour, so I tried Crisco and flour, and same problems. Then I mixed up my own cake release (someone else gave me the recipe) and it works like a charm for me.

Just mix equal parts of vegetable oil, shortening, and flour together, and use a pastry brush to coat your pan. Make sure to get every little spot in your pans, especially the 3-D pans. I used my silicone pastry brush and it left a lot of little streaks so I just used my fingers to make sure it was coated. My cakes have come out perfectly since using this.

I've had great results with the bear pan with actual Wilton cake release ... hadn't come across the recipe for cake release yet last time I did it, but as long as eevrything (including the core, if using) was completely coated, it worked perfectly. Good luck!

Hi fondantinmysleep,

I would guess that by now youâve removed the cake from the pan, but incase you havenât try using a soft spatula to wedge in between the cake and the pan, slowly moving side to side, all around the pan, then work your way to the bottom.

For future bear cakes and the like, try using Bakerâs or Pillsbury Cake Release Spray. You can find it in your local grocery store for around $3.00. The best part is your hands stay clean.

Just to add in my two cents. I get a baking spray ffrom my distributer and it works very well. One thing i have found thought is that you can not be scared to use as much as you think is needed. Thats how i was taught to do it and i have been doing it that way for years and have no problems with cakes sticking.
