Why is my pound cake sticking to the top when I try to take it out of the pan. I am using a Wilton's Angel Food Pan which I love. But sometimes even after spraying the pan with Bake Ease it still sticks to the top. I can't present a cake with some of the top missing. Why Why Why

Try lining the pan with parchment paper too.

Yes! Parchment paper is awesome!

I'm throwing in my support for parchment paper as well! It's AWESOME!

I fully support the parchment paper idea as well! But in case you forget to put it in I read recently that you can use a hair dryer to warm up the pan and the cake to get the pan to release a cake. I haven't tried it yet but it might be worth it if you only other choice is to scrape your cake out.

I think that I would try the hair dryer idea and at least you have a straight top to get it off of. It could be a bundt pan and then it would be harder to get out without messing up. Best wishes. Let us know if this works.
