We all have our favorite type of cake. Some of us cannot resist a slice of Bundt cake while others crave a piece of cheesecake and of course, no one can turn down a wedge of chocolate cake. Use these essential bakery supplies to ensure the most mouth-watering cake, every time.
Make sure that your cake pan is right for the type of cake on your menu because, while love of cake may be universal, not all cake pans are created the same. Cake pans are an essential bakery supply for many businesses or for residential use. We carry specialty cake pans for a unique treat or try any of the more traditional shapes for a cake that is sure to satisfy. There are practically as many different types of this versatile baking supply as there are cake recipes. There are many types of cakes, but there are some tips and tricks for baking cakes that always apply, no matter what type of cake you are baking. Although some of our cake pans are non-stick coated, we also sell non-stick pans that must be greased first to make short work of un-molding a freshly baked cake.
When greasing your cake pan, try cutting a piece of waxed paper to match the diameter of the cake pan and insert it after greasing the cake pan. This will completely prevent the cake from sticking to the bottom of the pan and it will leave fewer cleanups for you. If you are flouring the pan, try sprinkling it with a little dry cocoa or cake mix. This will put a tasty spin on tradition. Once your pan is greased, only fill the pan half or a third of the way full. This will prevent spillage. Once you’ve poured all the batter, give the pan a shake from side to side, making sure the outer edge of the cake is higher than the middle. When the cake bakes, the middle will catch up to the sides, ensuring a more even cake. When the cake is done cooking, don’t let it cool on top of the oven, set it aside, still in the pan, on a rack to cool.
