How to line a round cake tin

Makes: 1
Total time: 5 mins
Skill level: Easy peasy
Costs: Cheap as chips



You will need:

    • Non-stick baking parchment


    • Sharp scissors


    • A pencil


    • Your round baking tin





1. Grab some non-stick baking parchment, fold the paper in half, rest the tin on top and draw around it with a pencil.
2. Use scissors to cut out the circle just inside the line. Put to one side.
3. For the sides of the tin, lay the tin on its side and wrap the baking parchment around it so it’s fully covered. Then cut off that section of parchment.
4. Fold the paper in half length ways and then almost in half again, so that the height of the paper is just slightly higher than the height of the tin.
5. Make a series of cuts on the folded line, at an angle.
6. Place the side lining into the tin and press down on the cut folds, then place the bottom parchment circle on the base of the tin.
