Expert Tips

"When my son requested an ice cream cake for his 5th birthday, this is what I came up with."

To cut cake easily, line bottom and sides of pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging at opposite sides of pan. Spray bottom only of foil-lined pan with cooking spray. Use foil to lift cake out of pan. Pull foil from sides of cake before cutting into serving pieces.
