After this, she folds the triangle again to make it a point shape, and then places the point directly in the center of a round cake pan to measure it.

Then all you have to do is cut away the excess parchment paper on the outside and expand what is left.

You should have the perfect circle in your cake tin.

Since the clip was shared, more than five million people have watched it, and thousands have expressed how much they would have loved to have known this trick all their lives:

“That’s so cool, give it a try,” said one person.

“I’ve been doing this for six months now and frankly it saves me so much time,” added another.

A third posted, “They learn this in culinary school and it’s a game changer.”

Some asked what Mon would do with the sides of the pan, saying she usually just add a little excess butter and then use a knife to gently unmold the cake at the end of baking.

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

This causes chefs to make a round piece of parchment or parchment 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 arises.

If you have a square baking pan, Mon said you can also make sure you also have the right amount of parchment paper with just one piece (pictured in process)

If you have a square baking pan, Mon said you can also make sure that with just one piece you also have the right amount of parchment paper.

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

Fold all of these to the center of the sheet before folding it back out and folding the flaps down.

Then all you have to do is slide it gently into your square tray, where the sheet should also cover the sides and base.
