Christmas cake clarification and why brown paper?
Never made a cake before, but trying your classic Christmas cake. The instructions say "Finally take a double square of baking parchment with a 50p-sized hole in the centre ... and place this not on top of the mixture itself but on the rim of the brown paper."
But there has been no mention of the brown paper or its rim (only a picture) and I have no idea what it's for or how to do it. I have bought the right cake tin and liners but don't understand where the brown paper fits in. Thanks for your attention.
