cake problems:)

by Jessica
(Carpentersville IL)

I usually bake a cake according to the directions on the box. When I take the cake out of the oven I let it cool and try to take it out of the pan. It normally does not come out clean.The top comes out but when I flip it back over the whole bottom of the pan is still with the rest of the cake:)

I try to fix it but the cake crumbles horribly it's not even moist! That is probably the cake because I measure everything perfectly. Also, I should mention that I do add butter and flour to the pan before I cook - also sometimes I add Pam. I cook on an aluminum pan as well so shouldn't that make the cake come out clean?

I have another problem:) when I add the frosting the top crumbles also, this occurs even when my cake does come out nice and clean:( I do not have those flat knife things that I see on TV. I use a butter knife and it's stiff does not work. I use the frosting from the brand of cake mix I purchased. I hope you can help me!! Thank you.

Buy a bottle of Cake Release-It works great. You just spray it in you pan before you place your batter in and once your cake it cool it comes out prefect and crumb free. When you are frosting start on the top of the cake with a generous amount of icing and then move to the edges. This will help with the crumbs, just let the excess frosting run down the sides of the cake and then take you knife around. You’ll have a perfectly frosted cake that was without any crumbs.
