Tips

Spliting cake layers

Spliting cake layers

I have found when I need to split one layer into two I use thread to cut through the cake. It is easier than trying to get them even using a knife. Once I get the thread even around the cake I cross the two ends and pull them crosswise which cuts the layer of cake into two pieces. You can also use dental floss but make sure it is not flavored as it sometimes will leave the taste behind on the cake.


Decorating With Sliced Almonds

Decorating With Sliced Almonds

Sliced almonds can be tricky to work with because they are delicate. If you are using them for decorating, gently pour opened bag of almonds onto flat surface. They will break easily when picking up, or going throuth to find just the right ones, tread lightly using just one or two fingers. Use any remaining broken pieces for garnishes or in salads.
