Tips

Removing shortening from the measuring cup

Removing shortening from the measuring cup

Break your eggs and put them in your measuring cup, swirl them around and then put the eggs into another bowl before you measure your shortening into the measuring cup. The shortening will slide right out into your mixing bowl and then you can cream it with the sugar without any problem!


Freezing Cakes...

Freezing Cakes...

The best tip that I have ever received from anyone was to freeze my cakes! If you frost them while they are frozen they are so moist and everyone will ask what your secret is... very sneaky but soooo easy. :)
