For the first time ever I could not get my cake out of the pan now I have to redo my 6" and my 8 ". I usually use this stuff I get from the cake store which is shortening and something else works wonderfully. I ran out so I used shortening and flour and it stuck. It would take me longer to fix it with icing so I am remaking them right now. What do you use in your pans before you pour in the cake? Please hurry and reply, making it now!
Bakers release - equal parts of shortening, oil (flavourless), and flour. Whisk/beat together. Use straight away - brush on with a pastry brush - and store the rest in an airtight plastic box on the shelf. You can make some up right now with just a teaspoon of each, to see how it works for you
I also put a parchment circle in the bottom of each greased pan, just to be sure I don't leave a chunk behind.
I just use the baking spray with flour, never had a problem. I know a lot of people swear by parchment paper, I would like to try that.
I use the shortening, oil and flour combo as well as parchment. It works perfectly for me. I don't even turn them out of the pans while hot anymore. Just let them cool in the pans and take them out when I am ready to ice them. I actually buy parchment circles in each size that I use because they are so convenient.
Thanks I am trying the combo. Where do you get the precut parchment papers. Here's to hoping that they come out of the pans.
I am a big bargain hunter - I usually get the parchment circles from cakeart.com or ebay. I used to buy the rolls from the grocery but such a pain to cut and I bake a lot - so it was worth it for me to buy already cut circles.
Parchment circle and then Pam for Baking (contains flour) for the sides. The only thing I've ever used and I haven't had a reason to switch.
sorry it stuck on you. i use shortening and flour. you have to remove the cake within minutes. if you need to let it sit longer, you just pop it back in the oven for about a minute which softens the shortening up and lets the cake slide out with out sticking.
