How to keep your cake from sticking in the pan..,
So about a month ago a good friend of mine had a birthday. I got this great recipe from my Mom and had my husband help me make it because I'm kind of baking challenged still. Anyway all seemed good until the time came to remove it from the pan. Total disaster. I ended up throwing the cake in its many, many pieces away. In retrospect the problem was probably caused by me only waiting 20 minutes (which the recipe dictated) for it to cool before attempting removal. I did spray with Pam and then flour well.
So this leaves me with questions. What is the most effective way to grease a pan? This was a bundt cake but even a regular metal cake pan? I have been asked to make a carrot cake for my husband's birthday this year and don't want to repeat the bundt birthday cake disaster.
