It is both safe and effective to line your cake pan with wax paper. This makes your cake easy to remove from the bottom of the pan and creates a smooth sufface for frosting.

It is neither safe nor effective to line a cookie sheet with wax paper. This will cause a fire in your oven and leave both levels of your home filled with smoke.

It is helpful to understand substitutions when baking. For example, you may substitute 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup dark brown sugar for 1 cup of light brown sugar. You may NOT substitute wax paper for parchment paper.

We’ll file that away under “Lessons learned the first time.”

If you’ll excuse me, I have some smoked chocolate chip cookies to eat.
