Hi fellow bakers - can someone please tell me how I can cover a petal shaped cake pan with parchment paper? Simple enough for a round, but any helpful suggestions on how to do the same on a petal would be greatly appreciateD!
Do you mean to bake it? Trace the pan on the parchment and cut it out.
If you're prepping it for baking, why not use Pan Grease instead? Mix equal parts of shortening, flour & veg. oil. Just brush on to your pans. Works like a charm! Can be stored in an airtight container for forever. HTH!
Ditto what Kiddiekakes said... Trace and cut out.
I meant for the sides of the pan....prepping a round or simple shape cake pan with parchment paper on the sides is easy, but do you actually do that for petal pans too?
I have used the petal shaped pan ( the dancing daisy ). all i used on it to prep it is shortning and flour and it works well.
but do you actually do that for petal pans too?
Yes, i got my trusty tape measure out of said cupboard - painstakingly measured around the outside of the tin - in amongst all the grooves - that way i knew how much glad oven bake paper i needed to tear off the roll.
Sprayed lightly with Pan Release - then slowly adhered paper to tin.
Traced bottom of pan and popped that in after linning the sides.
Worked a treat and i was glad i took the time as the edges of my cooked cake were *sharp yet rounded* - IYKWIM.
