Cake Pan Preparation

Prepare your baking pan before baking to assure that your baked cake will release from the pan perfectly. There are three ways to do this:


Option 1: Brushing Inside Pan Surface with Solid Vegetable Shortening: The traditional method is to brush the inside pan surface with solid vegetable shortening, then add flour to the pan and tilt and rotate the pan so that all the surfaces are coated with flour.

Option 2: Brushing Inside Pan Surface with Cake Release: Or, brush with Cake Release, which has the flour added to the product already.

Option 3: Spray Pan with Pan Spray: The simplest method is to spray the pan with pan spray. We recommend using a product with flour already added or you can coat the pan with flour after spraying.
