Tips

Miracle of Salad Dressing

Miracle of Salad Dressing

I add Miracle whip salad dressing to every cake I make. It makes the cakes creamy and soft. The amount depends on the cake size, usually just 1/2 cup per cake mix does it. I learned this from my aunt Ethel when I was about 10 years old, I am 51 now. It is awesome with Chocolate Cakes and Carrot Cakes.


Large cakes to bake evenly

Large cakes to bake evenly

When I make large cakes, such as half-sheet cakes, I put a small metal cup in the middle of the batter. Having the metal heat also from the middle helps the cake bake more even AND the cake bakes quicker without drying out the sides! Let me know if this works for you!
