Foodie shares baking paper hack that will save you time in the kitchen

A foodie has taken the internet by storm after she shared a clip revealing how she makes sure she has the perfect amount of baking paper in her cake tin every time.

Australian cooking enthusiast Mon Mack posted on TikTok, where she explained how she cuts a circle of baking paper to fit the bottom of her tin by following a simple ‘life hack’, and you can do it too. 

Demonstrating how she does it in a short video, Mon said she first cuts a piece of baking paper, which she then folds it into a square, and then a triangle.

Following this, she folds the triangle again to turn it into a point shape, and then she puts the tip directly in the centre of a circular cake tin to measure it.

Then, all you need to do is cut away the excess baking paper from around the outside and expand what is left.

You should be left with the perfect circle inside your cake tin.

‘That is so cool, definitely giving it a go,’ one person said.

‘I have been doing this for six months and it honestly saves me so much time,’ another added.

A third posted: ‘They teach this in culinary school and it’s a game changer’.

Some asked what Mon would do about the sides of the baking tin, to which she said she usually just adds a little excess butter and then uses a knife to gently ease the cake out of the tin at the end of baking.

Others highlighted that this hack is derived from the French cartouche cooking technique.

This sees chefs create a round piece of parchment or baking paper to cover the surface of a stock, sauce, stew or soup, which helps to reduce evaporation, keep ingredients submerged and prevent a skin from forming on the top.

If you have a square baking tin, Mon said you can also ensure you also have the right amount of baking paper using just one piece (pictured in process)

If you have a square baking tin, Mon said you can also ensure you also have the right amount of baking paper using just one piece.

To do this, she said in another TikTok video, all you need to do is cut a piece of baking paper that is bigger than your tin, sit it underneath the tin and then cut in a straight line up to the tin so that you have four flaps.

Fold all of these in to the centre of the piece of paper, before folding it back out and folding down the flaps.

Then, all you need to do is gently slide it into your square tin, where the sheet should also cover the sides as well as the base.

Mon has gained a huge following on TikTok due to her food-related videos. For more information, please click here
