Tips

Fresh Boiled Icing

Fresh Boiled Icing

To keep boiled icing from hardening, add a small amount (1 teaspoon) of white vinegar to the water while it is cooking.


Butter Cakes

Butter Cakes

I find that any of the cake mixes can be enhanced and made richer by using 1 stick of butter subbed for the oil in most of the recipes. I cream the butter first and then add the eggs and mix till fairly smooth. Then I add the mix and water a little at a time till the consistency is smooth and light. I usually cut the water by as much as a 1/8 cup. Bake as usual. You'll find that the cake is more like a sponge cake with half the trouble and ingredients.
