Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Fluted tube cake pans can be a challenge to grease. To make it easier, place a dab of shortening on the outside of a small plastic sandwich bag. Slip the bag on your hand, and rub shortening on the inside of the pan. Repeat with more shortening until every surface is greased.
  • Tip 2
    Serve with neapolitan ice cream of course.
