HOW TO LINE A CAKE TIN

 

Lining a cake tin with greaseproof paper is a two part process. First create the base circle. To do this, cut off a strip of greaseproof paper which is an inch or two bigger than the cake tin. Fold in half, then fold in half again in the opposite direction.
Take the folded edge and fold in half into a triangle shape (see the picture )

 

 

Fold the greaseproof paper once more as shown in the picture on the right to form a cone shape.

 

 

Place the pointed end of the cone of greaseproof paper in the centre of the upturned cake tin. Cut the other end with a pair of scissors round the curve of the cake tin.

Unfold the cut greaseproof paper and you have a circle of greaseproof paper which is exactly the size of the base of the cake tin.

 

 

To line the sides you will need two pieces of greaseproof paper of the same size. Cut off a strip of greaseproof paper which is roughly 2.5cm (1 inch) taller than the side of the cake tin.
Cut 2.5 cm (1 inch) into the greaseproof paper at 5cm (2 inch) intervals.

 

 

Place one piece of greaseproof paper into the cake tin with the cut edge downwards. The cuts will allow you firm the paper around the tin with the base and sides laying flat against the tin.
Do the same with the other strip of greaseproof paper to cover all the sides of the cake tin.

 

 

Take the centre piece of greaseproof paper and place it on the base of the tin. Firm around the sides and base to make sure all the paper sat firmly in the cake tin. Because the inside of the cake tin was greased at the start, the paper will stick to the cake tin.
