How To Line A Cake Tin Tutorial !

How To line A Cake Tin Tutorial !
When I went and did a cake decorating course many years ago, I was taught how to line a tin to make a fruit cake. So today I'm making mini fruit cakes for Christmas and I thought I would include the steps to line a tin for beginners new to cooking fruit cakes. So lets begin, I use brown paper to line mine you could also use glad bake.This method is suitable for any shape tin ! Here is the link to my earlier post on free cake tins small cake tins about using salmon or tuna fish cans to make mini cake tins...I have been using these for years to make my mini fruit cakes.These are my mini salmon tins that I collected years ago but the technique is suitable for any size and shape tin .

Step 1.
Place cake tin on brown paper and trace around the bottom of the tin with a pencil and cut it out .

Step 2.
Now measure around the tin and cut paper to suit.then fold up about an inch .

Step 3.
Now cut little cuts just to the fold line as in photo .


Step 4.
Now place paper inside of cake tin so that the cuts
sit flat on the bottom of the cake tin .

Step 5.
Now place the circle in the bottom now its complete.Now you are ready to fill with the cake mixture.

You can use either a single layer of paper or you can double it to make it thicker it's really up to you .
I usually have double thickness,hopefully is will eliminate any leaching from materials in the tins .



  1. Thanks for the tutorial - I really suck at lining when I bake. Is it really ok to use plain brown paper?? I could pick up some mushroom bags from the grocers for free and use that ....

  2. Yes brown paper is fine to line cake tins people have been doing it for years and years ...
