I attempted the Layer Cake on Bakerella's blog. Got my pans at the $ store, probably only needed 5 pans; the pans cool quickly. She talked about using parchment paper, that's fine, but buttering & flouring the pans AND the parchment paper.
Isn't that what non-stick spray is for?
I'm trying the spray.
I also did half oil/half applesauce in the cake mix.
I used a cake mix, because again,
I would try a cake from scratch next time & no applesauce.
Just because it would probably be prettier.
I made Pioneer Woman's chocolate cake icing for the layers.
That's a favorite at our house.
It was an easy cake,
You can be messy & it still works.
Des (or anyone),
you're welcome to borrow my pans.
mmmm....I'm ready to make another one.
