How To Line a Round Cake Pan with Parchment
Round cake pan
Tear off a sheet of parchment. Tear or cut off a sheet of parchment just slightly bigger than the cake pan.
Fold the parchment in half. Fold the parchment in half from the bottom to the top.
Fold the parchment in half again. This time, fold the parchment in half from right to left so that it now more closely resembles a square.
Fold a triangle. Fold the square into a triangle by folding up from left to right.
Fold the triangle in half again. Fold up again from left to right to make an even smaller triangle.
Hold the triangle against the pan. Find the corner of the triangle where the center of the paper will be once it's unfolded. This is your center point. Place this corner in the middle of the cake pan and hold the parchment right where it hits the edge of the pan.
Cut the parchment. Using where you are holding the parchment as a guide, trim the triangle about 1/4-inch in from the edge of the pan.
Unfold the parchment. Unfold the parchment and you have a perfect round for your cake pan!
