Tips

Easy Way to cut a sheet cake

Easy Way to cut a sheet cake

An easy way to evenly cut a sheet cake that is on a board is to use your pizza cutter. I have a large round one,and to serve a crowd quick,I just do 4 vertical cuts and 3 horizontal rolls with it. And if you have someone who wants a smaller piece,its easy to half it as well. No more jagged knife lines !


Oven Temp

Oven Temp

You preheat the oven - or so you thought. I'm a pretty seasoned baker and I immediately knew something was wrong when I had one to many timing problems when baking. Truth is you cannot rely on your oven telling it's come to temp. Every good baker needs to keep on a hand an oven thermometer. Trust me on this, and always find yourself being a happy baker.
