Cake Release

Kristine Lucas


Now you longer longer need to grease and flour your pans. This recipe takes care of it all. The great thing is you can make as much as you want and it won't spoil, just store in a cool dry place. I learned this recipe when I took cake decorating classes, I haven't greased and floured a pan since.
