Baking is one of my hobbies and I got this passion from my Mum! I’ve been into baking since I was a little girl. So when in 2021 I had my first cake sticking in the pan, I immediately asked my Mother, my Grandmother, my Aunts, and close friends to see what I was doing wrong.
Then, one of my baker friends recommended using this homemade cake release with Crisco instead of baking spray. Honestly, I can’t thank her enough because it was a huge winner! And since then I use it all the time! Get ready to have the best homemade cake release recipe ever!
