I'll probably attrack ants.

Cake directions say cool 15 minutes, remove from pan. The cake has different ideas. Isn't budging.

Morning!

Fabulous weekend.

Nothing blew up at work over the weekend.

Yay!

Jatravartid cake still won't come out of the Jatravartid pan. What to do, what to do?

Heat the oven up to the baking temp, put the cake back in for about 5 minutes. Remove, put it on a wet towel (hear the sizzle!) for a minute or two, then invert it on a cooling rack.

If that doesn't work (and I will cross my fingers for you!), try freezing it. Works--but take a long time and then you have wait for it to defrost for glazing/frosting and serving.

I preheated the oven and went to pick up the cake pan. (Did I mention this was a bundt pan?) And half of it stayed on the plate. So I put the rest in the oven and then on the wet towel. Nothing. Pounded on the bottom with a knife handle and most of the rest came out. Kind of fit the pieces together, heated the glaze and poured it on. Good thing only friends will see it.

From reading things on the Internet, I think my mistake (at least one of them) was using cooking spray for the "grease and flour" part. From now on will use shortening. Although several online people say butter. (And it's difficult flouring a bundt pan.)

Yes, you'd mentioned it was a bundt pan.

I have a few recipes that are just stubborn. But, I always use butter and a bit of either flour or, for chocolate cakes, cocoa.

Morning, Wootlings. Sorry to hear about your cake, pooflady. I had serious stickiness problems with my last few cake attempts, too. =(

We did have a small dessert and that's probably good enough, but I was promised a better dessert!

Yeah, but that one's on me.

Technically, the top layer of the cake is what we're supposed to have for dessert then.

I'm not a big fan of tiramisu cake though. I'll suck it up, I guess.

We'll be in Disney World that day, so it makes planning easy.

Your wedding cake was tiramisu? I agree, I don't care a whole lot for it either. And going to Disney World for your anniversary? Wow!

Actually, the bottom layer was regular white cake with a raspberry filing, the middle layer was white cake with strawberry filing, and the small top layer was tiramisu. The other two layers were fantastic, this one...not so much. At least from what I remember from the tasting we went to.


The Disney World thing was not planned by us. My brother-in-law wants to take his kids to Disney World and they wanted everyone else to come along. They were the ones that picked the dates, we just agreed to go during that week. Of course, I haven't been to Disney World, so it was a no brainer for us to go.
