Line Round Cake Pans With Parchment Paper Perfectly, Every Time

Anyone who bakes cakes knows that parchment paper is key in preventing the dreaded cake sticking problem, but cutting that perfect circle, one that’s not too big or too small, can be the trickiest part of the process. This tip makes it easy.

Thankfully, Justin Chapple of Food & Wine’s Mad Genius Tips is here to show you the easiest way to cut those perfect parchment circles. Watch the video above to see this technique in action, but it’s just a bit of folding followed by a tiny snip of the scissors.

Justin cuts a piece of parchment paper that’s bigger than he needs, and then folds it in half twice before folding it diagonally, as you would a paper aeroplane. After all that folding, you’ll be left with a piece of parchment that sort of resembles a necktie. Put the tip of it in the centre of the cake pan, and trim along the very edge. Unfold the whole thing and voila: You have a parchment circle that will fit every time.
