Moister spice cake

Moister spice cake

My maternal great-grandmother LOVED to bake and one of her favorite cakes to bake was a spice cake. People always asked her how she would get her cake to be so moist, She wouldn't tell her secret, but I know it. If you are looking for a way to make your spice cakes more moist, just add a half a cup of water to the batter when mixing. If you decide you want to freeze the cake for a month or so, and then take it out of the freezer to thaw, it will remain moist when you are ready to cut it


Rolled fondant -vs- gum paste

Rolled fondant -vs- gum paste

Most of my customers do not like the taste of rolled fondant, so I tell them I will use buttercream icing and get it as smooth as I possibly can with the use of hot boiling water. Dip the metal spatula into the pot of boiling water and smooth down the icing. I use gum paste for some of the decorations. They seem to like the taste of gum paste better than rolled fondant. Which it is better to remove the decoration of gum paste than to romove the rolled fondant from a cake if not wanted.
