Baking tips

Welcome to the month of December! With the festive season officially here, I know there's going to be a lot of cake baking going on in homes with everyone trying to make something special for family and friends. Since I know some people are going to be trying their hands on cake baking for the first time, I decided to share a few cake baking tips to make the experience more pleasant.

  • Read the recipe carefully at least twice. 

  • Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature.

  • Have all the equipment needed ready and in sight.

  • Assemble all ingredients needed before you start mixing, this way you are less likely to forget anything.

  • Prepare the cake pans as directed in the recipe. Make sure the pans are the size called for in the recipe, you don't want your cake to overflow.

  • Pre-heat your oven.

  • Follow the recipe closely. Bake this way for a while before attempting to modify a recipe or coming up with  one of your own.

  • Do not over bake. Once a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, remove from the oven. Over baking will produce a dry cake.

  • Allow to cool in the pan for as long as your recipe calls for before turning onto a wire rack.

Enjoy your baking!
