Hello - I've never used parchment paper on the bottom of my pans but think I should start as it seems even though I spray the pans with PAM for the WASC cake it seems it still sticks to bottom. So my question is do I still need to spray bottom of pan with PAM and then put parchment paper down or just the parchment paper and spray around the sides?

Thanks very much.

I use parchment all the time because most of my cakes are special orders and I don't have time for re-baking due to a layer that stuck. I give the pan a quick shot of Pam before placing the parchment in just to secure the parchment, I then spray the pan sides and the parchment well. I also check the sides of the cake before I take it out of the pan to make sure they are not sticking, if it is just run a knife around the pan . I've never had a problem this with this method.

I use parchment in the bottom of the pans. I spray the sides with Baker's Joy first. There is a little overspray onto the bottom, but I don't try to actually spray the bottom. Then I put in the precut parchment. I leave the parchment on when I freeze my cakes, too, and even after they've thawed and I'm torting. I think it makes the cakes a little easier to handle.

Thank you for the anwers! I hope this solves my problems with cake bottoms sticking to may pan. Maybe I was overspraying in the first place? Regardless, I will definitely try the parchment paper method.

Ditto for me on all of this. icon_smile.gif
