The cake that I made for my Sister-In-Law for her 30th birthday this last weekend.
Tip #1 - Cakes that NEVER stick to the pan!
Mix together equal amounts of oil, crisco, and flour
Use a brush to coat your pans.
Your cakes will not stick.
This comes in very handy when you have lots of cakes to make.
Tip #2 Do not under mix your cake mix.
This photo shows a cake that is under mixed.
This cake shows a well mixed cake. It is light and fluffy and several shades lighter.
I use my stand mixer with the paddle attachment on a medium speed for 2 minutes.
