I have been having an issue after i take my cakes out of the oven i let them cool in the pans for about 10 minutes and then i flip them out onto a cookie rack so the can cool the rest of the way but then when i go to pick them up again after they are all cooled part of the cake sticks to the rack and pulls off. How can i keep this from happening?

Spray your rack with nonstick spray before setting the cake on it. Even just brushing some butter on it will help prevent the cake from sticking.

Also, after flipping them out onto a rack, immediately flip them a second time onto another rack. This puts the less sticky, sturdier bottom surface on the rack instead of the softer top surface.

And letting a cake sit upside-down is a recipe for structure damage if the cake has any kind of dome on top at all. The cake will rest on the dome, and the side edges will be bent down to the rack by their weight. Not good for a cake.
