How to Grease & Line a Circular Cake Tin

Make sure you grease and line your cake tin to prevent the cake from sticking to the side whilst baking, making it difficult to remove from the tin. Use a pastry brush and brush a small amount of butter or oil around the sides of the tin.

Method

  1. Cut a strip of baking parchment slightly longer than the circumference of the tin and a few inches higher. Fold it back about 1 inch along its length, then snip it at an angle at intervals up to the fold, making a fringe effect.

  2. To attached the baking paper around the side of the tin press the paper and it will stick to the butter/oil, the snipped edge should overlap on the base of the tin.

  3. To cut the circle out use the tin as a template, drawing round the base with a pencil. Cut this out to fit over the snipped paper over the base.
