Cake Pan Tips

Cake Pan Tips

Rather than flouring your pan, save a small bit of cake mix to coat with. Saves you from having that white flour on the edges and tastes better too!


Denser & Moister Cakes

Denser & Moister Cakes

When preparing any cake mix, substitute water with evaporated milk and proceed as usual. Cake will turn out denser and moister than when baked with water and it will remain so, covered, for several days. Try it, you won't regret it.
