Do any of you bakers have advice for me on getting my cakes out in one piece? Yes, I greased and floured both pans and let the cakes cool off a little bit before I started. I also slid a knife along the edge to "break" the web of batter that tends to cling to the sides. No luck.

let the cakes cool at least 10 or 15 minutes in the pan - make sure that they are baked long enough - after you do the knife around the perimeter, jiggle the pan from side to side ( like panning for gold) and loosen it up.

Finally, when you flip the cake over, put your hand (with a sheet of wax paper on it if you want) over the cake first.

If it's a huge cake, put a large UPSIDE DOWN and COVERED in wax paper cookie sheet or whatever is it's size, on TOP of the cake.

THEN flip it.

Don't touch it till it's all the way cool, or it may break apart.
