Glad to hear it worked! I use parchment/waxed paper all the time. The peace of mind it gives me is well worth it. I never have to worry about whether the cake is going to come out of the pan or not. Also, I leave the paper on the cakes when I wrap them and put them in the freezer. I don't remove it until right before I stack or tort the layers. It makes the cake a little more sturdy and easier to handle, plus I think it helps hold in some moisture.
