This Wilton Cake release is quite likely one of my biggest passions. I will rave about it, to anyone that will listen. It ensures, your cakes release easily, with not one single crumb stuck to the cake pan, it also gives a great golden surface for decorating. It is particularly useful for novelty shaped pans. This is a story some of you may have heard me tell before. But I gave my Mum a bottle of cake release one day, telling her how good it was, she took it, all the while thinking I was mad, then not long after I received an email from mum entitled "I LOVE CAKE RELEASE". She proceeded to buy a bottle for everyone of her friends for Christmas last year (who are also now converted). If I could urge you to buy just one thing new, it would be this. Priced at just 9.50, one bottle should last for around 20 cakes. Click here to buy.
