v. A pan is lined for many reasons — to prevent the mixture in it from sticking, to provide structure to a soft mixture or to add texture and/or flavor. The lining can be a nonedible material such as parchment paper, thin slices of cake (for structure, as in a charlotte), slices of cured meat (as with a pâté) or a simple coating of bread or cookie crumbs.
