    Fruitcake Help - Parchment Paper substitute?

    I'm making a fruitcake today (hold the giggles please!), and the recipe wants the pan lined with baking parchment, which I do not have. Can I substitute wax paper? I've never made fruitcake but am sure it will be pretty sticky stuff....

    yes, I am sure you can substitute waxed paper so long as it will be completely covered by the fruitcake batter (i.e. so long as the wax paper isn't poking up at the top edges of the pan).

    I'd say either greased wax paper or greased foil should work just fine.

    I've even used greased brown paper and it worked fine.

    I forgot to put the foil in the pan, just greased it with pam, and they came out fine. Of course, then I basted them with rum, and wrapped them in rum soaked cheesecloth, wrapped them in foil and put in the fridge to mellow. Before I wrap them as gifts, I will take off the rum soaked cheesecloth!
