Battle of the Brands: Pam VS Wilton
Welcome to the driest, most boring first post of a blog in the history of the Internet. There should have been clowns and trumpets andchampagne and cake with sprinkles somewhere here, but no. I chose grease. Wow.
This is the first edition of the Battle of the Brands.
Contender on the left: Wilton cake release, contender on the right: PAM Original cooking spray w/flour.
Both competitors used the same baking pan, same cake recipe, same cooking time, same temperature.
You should think the result would be pretty even?
Naughty Pam got very eager and sprayed not only the pan, but parts of the kitchen floor as well. Wilton looked a little goopy and weird, and needed to be applied with a brush. A little extra work, but not so much it would ruin your day completely.
The end result?
The Wilton cake came out with almost no air pockets, didn't stick a bit, even when the cake was still a little warm. It also didn't brown much on the edges. PAM did her best, poor thing, but ended up being... just OK. A few pieces stuck to the pan, the surface was somewhat uneven and the cake was brown around the edges.
The picture says it all - which cake would you rather have?
