Cake Tins FAQS

How To Measure Cake Tins: Get the Right Fit

When getting started baking a cake, you'll first need to ensure that your cake tin is the right size for the job. To measure a cake tin, follow these simple steps:

  1. Get a ruler or tape measure. Make sure it is long enough to measure the width and height of your cake tin.
  2. Measure the width of the cake tin. Place the ruler across the middle of the tin, from one side to the other. The width is the distance from one edge of the tin to the opposite edge.
  3. Measure the height of the cake tin. Place the ruler inside the tin, standing it up against one of the sides. The height is the distance from the bottom of the tin to the top.
  4. Make a note of the measurements. Write down the width and height of your cake tin.
  5. Use the measurements to adjust your recipe. If your recipe calls for a specific-sized cake tin and your tin is a different size, you will need to adjust the recipe accordingly. For example, if your recipe calls for a 20cm cake pan but yours is 22cm, you may need to increase the amount of batter used and adjust the baking time.

How to Line a Cake Tin?

Lining a cake tin is an important step in cake baking that ensures the cake will release easily and be uniform in shape. Baking paper is the most common method of lining cake tins. Simply cut out a circle or square and line the bottom of the tin. To line the sides, cut a strip of paper and attach it to the sides of the tin with a little butter or oil.
