At my wits end.... - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I only use DH and never have a problem. I grease and sometimes use wax paper on the bottom. I also do not cool my cakes in the pans at all, I flip out onto a rack as soon as they come out of the oven. That way the "grease" doesn't have the chance to cool and congeal causing the cake to stick.

The only time I ever use parchment on the sides is when I'm trying a new recipe and have no idea how high I should fill the pan and how high it the cake will raise. Having a nice ring of parchment with an extra inch or so of protection around the height of the pan has definitely saved me from a couple of burnt-oven disasters!!!

I have used parchment on the bottom of my pans for years. I love it because if I get busy and forget to turn the cakes out onto a cooling rack they still come out fine, no matter how long they've sat in the pan. I buy the different size circles by the package of 100 and always make sure I have them on hand.

Yay! I've never used parchment on the sides, either. I've just started using it on the bottom and love it. You bet your heiney I'd use it on the sides if the sides were sticking, though! Much less frustrating and inexpensive than baking and rebaking and rebaking. Glad it worked out for you!

I feel your frustration and your relief when you got those things to bake without problems! I just delivered a cake today (which was a disater as I watched it slide apart in the car...) but I wanted to add, that two of the tiers were coconut extended DH mix cakes...and I always use parchment paper liner bottoms and have no trouble. I used a regular DH yellow cake mix, replaced one cup of the water with coconut milk, added a tsp of coconut extract, 3/4 cup shredded coconut, and the remaining usual add-ins, sour cream, flour, sugar, etc.

I think after reading your post, I will make sure to continue to use those parchment circles, I often wonder if I really need them, that I might be safe using just grease and flour. Thanks for sharing your experience!!

I'm glad it finally worked out.

I use waxed paper as well, like Loucinda said. Parchment for me is too expensive. I started using it after having to chuck out some WASC cakes that got destroyed on their way out of the pan. Now I never have a problem.

I never bake a cake without parchment paper. It's the only way to be 100% sure.
