cutting parchment circles for cake pans

Parchment Circles Hack ~ Shani’s Tips & Tricks


Parchment Circles Hack Coming Your Way!

Ok confession time.  You know those pesky parchment circles for the bottom of your cake pans?  For some weird reason I have an aversion to cutting those out.  Weird.  I know.  But there are some things in life that just hit the wrong note with me.  Oddly, that is one of them.  I would procrastinate baking a cake because I was dreading cutting the parchment circles.  Maybe I need therapy, I don’t know.

But actually a really good thing came out of this weird aversion.  My parchment circle hack!  I think you will like it too.


Shani’s Parchment Circle Hack


I stack 6 sheets of parchment at a time.  If you do much more than that it’s hard to cut through them all at once.

My rotary cutter is one of my favorite tools!   This is a great set to have, so handy for so many things.

Here are the other tools and supplies I keep on hand for cutting parchment circles.


Hope this helps you all!  Now I take about half an hour and cut out all the parchment circles I will need for the month.  Whew!  It really makes my brain feel better when I have them all done and ready to grab and bake!  Let me know what you think in the comments.

  1. Genius!!! I hate cutting these out as well, but hate spending money on precut parchment circles even more. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I do the same thing with stapling sheets together, but cutting them out with scissors is much easier. Why do you make them smaller than the cake pan?

Tell me what you think!
