- Mold to cover
- A little bit of butter
Steps to follow
- Fold the silicone paper several times until you form a triangle.
- With the mold upside down, place that triangle over the mold with the wider side out. Take the paper cut with the scissors following the shape of the edge of the mold.
- Just unfold the triangle and place it inside the mould and you will see that it fits easily and you will also be able to cover the walls of the container.
