Tips

For a Moist Cake

For a Moist Cake

The main reason cakes become dry is they are over-baked. As a rule, check the cake at the shorter end of the baking time range. If your cake doesn't test done with a toothpick, return it to the oven for the full baking time.


Fool proof tip for high rising cakes

Fool proof tip for high rising cakes

When making my cakes with Duncan Hines cake mixes I always use 2 to 3 heaping teaspoons of all-purpose flour to the mix . It never fails for me. The cake comes out so high and the cake is very moist and delicious. (:
