How to Line A Cake Tin
Even if you’ve got a non-stick cake tin, I find it’s way too scary putting cake mixture in without a lining. I’ve had a cake stick before, and the sound ‘Nooooooooaaaarghhhhh’ came out of my mouth. Why risk that?
1.Draw round the base and cut out a circle. Cut a strip (or two) which are as high as the cake tin and can go all the way round. As above. Fold an inch or so over on these strips, as above.2. Snip this border at inch or so intervals.3. Curl the strip or strips into the tin so they line the sides. The ends need to overlap so no bare tin is showing.
It is now cake-ready.
