Just a quick tips & tricks posting to show you how I line my spring form cake pan. Most of you probably know this already or have your own (favorite) way of doing it, but for those of you new to cooking & baking, it might be useful to see at least one way you can do this.
What you need:
greaseproof baking paper
spring-form cake pan
I’m using a 8.5 inch (22cm) cake tin for this.
Now using a brush (or your hands), lightly grease the cake tin. This will make the paper stick to the bottom and sides.
My baking paper came in pre cut square pieces (or I would have used a smaller piece), but just cut a strip off the paper that’s about 1 1/2 inch bigger than the cake tin.
Fold it in half and fold it again in the opposite direction until you end up with a little square. Now take the folded edge and flip it over turning the whole thing into a triangle. Fold it once more to get a smaller triangle, and that’s it.
Simply place the tip of your origami in the center of the cake tin, and cut the end round the curve.
There’s your bottom! (no, not your bottom!)
Cut a paper strip that’s about 1 1/2 inch taller than the side of the cake tin you’ll be using. Fold roughly 1 inch over, and give a small cut at every 1 inch.
Because you greased the tin, the paper should simply stick to the tin. Put the sides in with the cut edge downwards and place the base on top. Press down firmly on all sides.
Voila, you’re done.
Tip: I always lightly grease the paper as well.
