Don't know how bad it is or of you can fix it.... but with THREE cakes to cut from, I would think you could get enough (will look torted *bonus*) to make your tier work. Next time use parchment in the bottom along with the pam. Will work wonders.

i always use the pam spray with flour and sometimes use parchment paper too. try that next time. but i love the spray oil with flour. i buy whatever is cheaper it doesnt make a difference.

I prefer the Pam with flour as well. Depending on the pan I'm using as well as the recipe, I may or may not line the bottom with parchment.

Your problem sounds more like your pan - is it a good heavy gauge pan or a thin cheap one?

I know with my Magic Line pans, I only have to spray them and everything pops out just fine. I've chucked all my Wilton pans except for a couple non-stick.

I have a sure-fire way to keep cakes from sticking in the pan. Of course use your Pam for baking or the shortening with flour. Then after they are done baking only cool them for 10 minutes Literally, 10 minutes set a timer. Use potholders (your pan will still be hot) run a knife around the edge and dump it onto a cooling rack and let it finish cooling.
The reason is that 10 minutes allows the steam to escape. Any more than that gluton starts to form and will hold your cake in the pan.
Try it, it really does work thumbs_up.gif
