Preventing Cakes from Sticking to a Cake Pan

August 18, 2014

Trace the bottom of cake pan onto wax paper and cut out the circle. Cut wax paper strips the height of sides of your pan. Coat inside and bottom with oil (I use canola). Put wax paper circle and strips inside pan. Pour in cake batter and bake.

When done, flip out cake onto cake plate. Do not let cake stay in cake pan and cool. Peel off wax paper slowly while cake is hot.

This is an old bakers' secret! Check out my previous tip for making your cakes level.

I learned something very neat at my job the other day, since I work alone in the kitchen. I needed to make a cake and I did not want to stay to scrub this pan.

I've always greased the pan the old fashioned way and then after removing the cake just simply soak the pans in water for about five minutes and it comes off easily with even your fingertips. Definitely no scrubbing and save money by not using extra or fancy products.

Baker's Joy or store brand, works like a charm! I wouldn't try these for years because I didn't want to risk my cake possibly sticking to the pans. I always greased and floured my pans the old fashioned way.

I finally broke down and tried the sprays. They work great and so simple to use. Cakes pop right out of the pans with no problem.

I got this hint from some ladies in a cake club who swear by this recipe that works like a charm & I never use those sprays anymore.

Pan Release:
1 cup Crisco Oil
1 cup Crisco Shortening
1 cup flour

(I have also used no-name brands & they work well too.)
Use equal amounts of each to make the amount you will want. Blend together and store in an airtight container & spread on your pans with a pastry brush.
I personally use 1 cup of each & store the jar in the cupboard or fridge if the weather is too hot.
*The first time my daughter tried this method, the cake came out so fast it ended up on the floor!!*..I have never had one stick and the pan washes easily.

My cake stuck to the pan. I greased and floured the pan (Wilton 9 inch round). I just started cake decorating class and thought baking would be the easy part, I guessed wrong.
