Thought that baking spray was enough.
A second thought: Where can I get 9" cake pans that are not sloped but
have straight sides.
Places like AC Moore, Michael's, craft stores that sell cake decorating supplies usually sell them. The light weight aluminum work quite well (wilton is a popular brand), so don't be fooled by the weight. Bed Bath and Beyond and most other kitchen stores should have them as well, Chicago Metallic, and Calphalon are popular brands. Just look for the pans that don't "nest" inside of each other but rather just sit on top of each other, that's usually a good indication of straight sides.
Amazon is a good place too to find all of these brands as well as a couple of professional brands like Magic Line and Fat Daddios, these are constructed similarly to the Wilton pro pans, but much better quality.
I would suggest both 8" and 9" pans, I use the 8" most often, with most recipes this will produce a nice thick layer. The 9" are good when you have a larger recipe. A cake mix for instance will look a bit thin in a 9" pan.
