Baking paper techniques

When baking, I always fear that the cake won’t come out easily from the pan afterwards.

Even greased baking tins can make cakes a pain to remove, but using baking paper insures that a cake comes out perfect. You can buy baking paper at any supermarket.

I’m going to show you show to make baking paper fit into a baking pan without it being too big for the tin, causing you to trim it down. If you have to recut it, it can become too small for the pan.

This method just requires you to simply fold the paper. Then put the cut paper while it’s in the centre of the upside down cake pan and trim the edge off for a perfect fit – and voila!

1 Cut off a sheet of baking paper just slightly bigger than the cake pan.

2 Fold the baking paper in half.

3 Then fold it in half again from right to left so that it resembles a square.

4 Fold the square into a triangle by folding upwards from left to right.

5 Then fold upwards again from left to right to make an even smaller triangle.

6 Put the paper in the centre on the upside down cake pan, this is where the paper will be once it's unfolded inside the pan. Hold the baking paper down right where it hits the edge of the pan.

7 Then trim the excess paper off the edge of the pan with a sharp scissors.

8 Unfold the baking paper for a perfect cut to line the bottom of a cake pan.
