Hi. Why would my wax paper liner stick to the pan? A layer of my cake came off and stuck to the liner! What is this??? Why?? Thanks in advance.
Waxed paper is coated with.....wax. it will melt in the oven. It can work, but you need a good coating of flour under the paper to help prevent sticking.
A much better choice is parchmant paper. No wax, and it works perfectly. You can buy it in precut circles-fairly expensive. Or, you can buy a case of it (1,000 full sheets) for about $35. It will last years for the average home baker.
If you leave it to cool too long, the wax will re-harden acting like a glue. Just set it in the oven for 30 seconds or so (just long enough to soften it), and then remove.
