Baking Tips

Standard

 

Dont use cold eggs

  • they work better at room temperature
  • if you are in a hurry but them in a bowl of warm water for 10-15 minutes

Separate the whites from the yolks

  • if you do this you can fluff the egg whites and add them in last
  • this will make your cake fluffier!

 

Use room temperature butter

  • in a hurry cut it up and microwave it 
  • microwave in 5 second intervals

 

Use a pastry brush to butter pans

  • it will give you an even coat 
  • honestly I don’t do this but it is suggested

 

Messure the flour properly

  • it is suggested not to scoop from the bag 
  • make sure you scrape off the excess flour with the back of a knife

 

Rotate the Pans During Baking

  • This will ensure even baking
  • Wait until the cake is set—about two-thirds of the way through the baking time—to prevent collapse.
  • If you’re using more than one rack, this is also the time to swap the pans.
  • use middle rack

 

Cool cakes upside down

  • this will flatten out the top 
  • this makes it supper easy to stack them
  • if not you can cut a little off the top so you can stack it
