Updated July 20, 2017

Baking can be a fun and rewarding hobby. There are desserts for every occasion and make birthday's and holidays extra special. However, cleaning up can be time consuming. To avoid long hours of cleaning there are several tricks you can use to save time. When baking a cake, lining the pan is a great way to cut down on cleaning time. It can also make it easier for you to remove cakes from the tin for a clean presentation.

  1. Place the cake tin on top of baking paper and trace its outline. Cut out the tracing and make sure it fits on the bottom of the cake tin.

  2. Cut out a strip of baking paper long enough to cover the sides of the cake tin and 1 inch higher than the sides. Fold down an inch of the paper and cut half-inch slits into it. Leave about an inch between each slit.

  3. Grease the cake tin with the non-stick baking spray.

  4. Place the long strip along the edges of the cake tin with the slit end of the paper lying flat on the bottom of the tin. Paper clip the edges of the strip together. Place the baking paper you cut in Step 1 on the bottom of the cake tin.

  5. Fill the cake tin with cake batter and bake as usual.
