I have been making cakes for 30 years and never had problems with my cakes sticking to the pans until just lately. I tried the WASC cake recipe for the first time last week. For the first two cakes, I sprayed them with Bakers Joy spray. When I tried to get them out of the pans, they stuck and when they did come out, they tore on the bottom and sides, not alot but did not come clean out of the pans so the edges were all jagged and torn. The second ones, I used shortening and flour and they did the same thing when I took them out. I made a regular box cake that day also and it did not stick and edges were clean. I just made another homeade yellow cake, used the Bakers Joy and the cakes stuck and tore just like the WASC cakes did. Do all homeade cakes not come clean out of the pans or what could possibly be going on. It seemed like the edges and top of the cakes were wet and that might have been why they were sticking. The regular box cake seemed more dry on the edges.
