Making a marble cake and have no greaseproof paper, what else can I use? Will lining with butter work? Or can I use foil?

Thanks smile

Use something greecy them flour - tip any remaining flour out once covered.

You could try buttering your cake tin then put a tablespoonful of flour on top of the buttered bit and turn the cake tin so all the flour sticks to the butter.

Failing that, I have used muffin cake papers flattened out but you need quite a few.

Thanks both, I greased and floured the tin, worked fine smile shame the marble effect didn't work so well grin

For he future; butter papers work fine and, in an emergency, I have used ordinary printer paper and greased it with a little oil on a pastry brush. Worked just as well, but thicker that greaseproof paper so harder to fit into corners.
What went wrong with the marbling effect?

the, obviously ...
