Hello, I am new here though I have been viewing posts here for 1 1/2 years so I feel like I kind of know some of you. Anyways, now that I've gotten my hands wet on breads, sourdoughs, etc... the past couple of years, I would like to try my hand at making decorative cakes. I got the "Cake Bible" by Rose Levy at the library to start. I know one of the first possible problems to conquer is making sure the cake doesn't stick to the pan. Do you use the parchment paper method or the butter or shortening/flour method. I would like to start with a round cake of 2 layers. What sort of pans should I buy? Thank you for your help.
