I spray the sides first then the over spray that goes into the bottom helps to keep the parchment in place untill you fill the pan. i neve spray on top of the parchment and i have never had it stick to it. Good luck!
Oh i am so sorry (((((((((((BIG HUG)))))))))))! Dont let it get you down too much, i have not been doing this too long but am dreading a big disaster like yours i figure I just want to get it over with. But i would have been just as...
i dont know i would think if you did not support the top evenly the wieght would cause it to sag in the crumbled areas. but i am truely not to sure so here is a bump! hope someone else can be of more use.
indydebi, thanks so much for the recipie i will be trying it for my cakes next week. i just hate the new no transfat crisco but crisco itself is so convenient in its premeasured containers. cant wait to try!
