However, here are some of the best ways to prevent the cake from sticking to the mould.

Tricks to prevent the cake from sticking to the mould

The truth is that there are many different formulas to prevent our dessert or cake from ending up stuck to the mold and looking unappetizing.

  • Create a light dough with half a cup of flour + half a cup of butter + half a cup of oil. Spread this mixture on the bowl before putting the cake in the mould.
  • Butter the whole pan, including the corners. This will “hydrate” the base where the cake will go to prevent it from sticking later.
  • Add a few drops of oil and spread it all over the bowl. Normally we use a knife or spatula to help us if it gets stuck to the edges, but what if it gets stuck to the base? To avoid that, after smearing with a little oil, put some vegetable paper on the base, this will prevent it from sticking. This trick is the most recommended for cupcake and muffin moulds. If you like this type of pastry, you will like our original cupcake capsules.
