Removing a cake from a tin can be a tricky task. Mary Berry shows you how.

-Run a palette or rounded butter knife around the inside edge of the cake tin and carefully turn the cake out onto a cooling rack.

-To remove the cakes without leaving a wire rack mark on the top, put a clean tea towel over the tin, put your hand onto the tea towel and turn the tin upside-down.

-The cake should come out onto your hand and the tea towel - then remove the greaseproof paper and turn it from your hand onto the wire rack.
