I've already covered how to line the bottom of a round pan, here: Many recipes call for the side of the pan to also be lined to, firstly, create a little cuff that prevents any spillover and, secondly, make the baked cake easier to remove. But how do you then line the side?
- Cut a strip of parchment long enough to wrap around the pan (with a little overlap) and tall enough to extend up the side with at least a 1-inch overhang
- Arrange the strip inside your lightly greased pan (the grease will help the parchment stick and stay in place)
- Trim any excess parchment
