Ingredients

  • You will need:
  • Non-stick baking parchment
  • Sharp scissors
  • A pencil
  • Your round baking tin

Method

  • Grab some non-stick baking parchment, fold the paper in half, rest the tin on top and draw around it with a pencil.

  • Use scissors to cut out the circle just inside the line. Put to one side.

  • For the sides of the tin, lay the tin on its side and wrap the baking parchment around it so it’s fully covered. Then cut off that section of parchment.

  • Fold the paper in half length ways and then almost in half again, so that the height of the paper is just slightly higher than the height of the tin.

  • Make a series of cuts on the folded line, at an angle.

  • Place the side lining into the tin and press down on the cut folds, then place the bottom parchment circle on the base of the tin.
