Does anyone have some tips on how to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan? Do the products for this really work? I applied crisco previously to cakes but lately been having bad luck with it sticking...

Crisco needs to be followed by a dusting of flour to work properly. I use the sprays on occasion and wilton pan release. They all work well. Some people even make their own cake release , there is a recipe on here for it. It is all a matter of choice.

I use wilton cake release and it works wonderfully, the cake comes right out of the pan.

I've been using this for YEARS on regular pans and detailed it NEVER fails.

Mix 1cup oil. 1 cup flour and 1cup shortening in mixer for about 5 min , it turns smooth and stays for a long time left out. Try it you'll LOVE IT!!!!!

I like the cake release, but I had to change it a little. My cakes were still sticking.
So I used 1c shortening, 1/2c oil, 1 1/2c flour. That seemed to help alot.
I also like baker's joy. It works really well too.

I'm with debster, I use the "bakers grease" and never have problems. It should be noted that you will have a lot left over so make sure you have an airtight container to store it and store in out of the heat/sun. Just mix it up right before you baste it on your pans with a pastry brush.

You may want to consider leaving your cakes in a little longer as well. When I first started I would pull them out when I thought they were done only to have large pieces still sticking to the pan. Once I left them in about 3 mins longer than recommend I didn't seem to have anymore problems.

Also, just want to make sure that you are turning out your cakes after about 10-15 mins and not waiting longer or too soon.

Good Luck!!

I love the homemade cake release! I agree I use a tad extra flour in it, and I beat it until its white and fluffy. Then just store in a plastic container and apply with a silicone brush. Easy!

I use this also and I just "paint" it on the pan with a pastry brush. I also line the bottom of my baking pans with wax paper...I grease that too. That way if I leave my cake in the pan to cool it doesn't stick.
