What’s the Difference Between White, Yellow, and Vanilla Cake?

How To Line a Round Cake Pan with Parchment
When baking cakes, especially layered ones, my greatest fear is that the cakes won’t come out of the pans easily even if I’ve greased the living daylights out of them.

While you can buy parchment paper already pre-cut into rounds, they’re expensive and you’d need to buy more than one type of round if you have cake pans in multiple sizes.
