Recently, a close friend of mine asked me how I line a cake tin. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a million words. That gave me the idea of doing this tutorial post to share it with more people who are new in baking. These steps are neither new nor are any fancy tips, but just basic knowledge which I picked up from the cookbooks. So next time if you come across “grease the baking tin and line it with grease proof paper” in any recipes, you will know what to do.
Taking self-posing shots was real cool, but it was tiring too. First I had to set the self-timer on my camera and then quickly ran back to the table to pose for the shot. So this silly act was pretty comical. I looked like the Road Runner cartoon character rushing here and there, which caused me to perspire so much that my vision got blurred. I think I lost some calories as well. The good thing is I discovered the beauty of tripod and self-timer.
I hope you will enjoy reading this post even though it is not the usual recipe post in my food blog. For my faithful readers, please bear with me for this tutorial post. I will share with you more food recipes in my upcoming posts.

If you bake your cake in any cupcake mould, muffin mould or pudding mould which does not require lining, then you can grease the mould, sieve flour on top and then dust off any excess flour. This will help you to turn the cake out easily after baking. (Tip provided by Chef Sam).
