Tips

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. :)

Baking with Extracts

To retain the flavor of your extracts when baking, blend them into your butter, oleo, or other high fats ingredient. This will create an emulsion between the two and prevent flash off of your extract.
