PME Release-a-Cake 236g

Product number: 62006

When you’ve mixed up a beautiful bake, the last thing you want is for all your work to be wasted when half of it stubbornly refuses to come out of the tin. PME’s Release-a-Cake helps cakes slide easily from tins after baking without a crumb left behind – and without having to resort to fiddly greasing and lining.

Leave no cake behind after baking

When it comes to turning out cakes, this clever formulation means they’ll be released perfectly, even from the most intricately shaped tins. So there’ll be no more mourning ruined bakes, or carefully scraping extra mix off the bottom of your tin and trying to fit it, jigsaw-style, into the part that did turn out! And because they turn out so well, your cakes are left with a smooth surface, perfect for getting the best icing and decorating results.

Easy alternative to greasing or lining

The perfect solution if you enjoy baking, but don’t like the hassle of having to grease your tins with butter and then line them with baking parchment, all you do is pour a little into your cake tin, then use a pastry brush to spread all over the base and sides – there’s no fiddling about smearing butter, cutting and sticking baking parchment, or sifting with flour and then tipping out any messy excess.

Ideal for intricately shaped moulds

If you’ve got a beautiful ring tin, intricate silicone mould or fancy fluted cake pan that you don’t use as much as you’d like because you’re never quite sure how your cakes are going to turn out, this is ideal. Going where greasing and lining just can’t reach, it can be ‘painted’ right into all the tricky corners so no part of your bake sticks to the tin, however delicate the detail.

I totally agree with the reviewers who gave this product a poor rating. The previous product sold by you was much better and cakes did not stick. Whatever I do with this one, the cakes stick and break up when removing them from the tins. And please don’t tell me to shake the product and apply with a brush as that’s exactly what I have done each time. I’m afraid I will now be buying my cake release from Amazon.

Thanks for your review. We’re sorry this hasn’t worked well for you.

I bought this while in a store buying other items. When I subsequently read the reviews, I was puzzled how the same product can have the amount of 1 and 5 star ratings. I decided it to give it a go with a 3 layer chocolate cake cooked in 7" tins. Each cake came out of the tin perfectly without any effort and leaving no residue. Just follow the instructions. Give the bottle a really good shake every time you use it. Put a few drops in the tin and spread using a silicon pastry brush to give a thin even, coat on the base and sides. I will certainly use this every time I bake and will order again.

"Does exactly what it says!"

This was included in some baking goods I received as Christmas presents, and although I probably never would have bought this myself as was satisfied with baking paper, I now love it!! I no longer scratch the edges of my tins loosening anything to remove my bakes as they just fall straight out! Even my Bundt tin turns out perfectly!! Will repurchase when finished!

I have used the Wilton product the you use to stock for years with no problems and I would have given it 5* but I do not find the PME Release-a-Cake as good. I shake it well and use a pastry brush to apply a small amount to the tins but I find that my cakes now stick when previously they didn't. Sadly I won't be buying another bottle and will be looking elsewhere to buy the Wilton brand instead.

Works really really well. Nothing else is as effective, never have to line tins if I use this
