Tips

Frosting Creation mix in cakes

Frosting Creation mix in cakes

So I accidently bought the frosting creation flavoring (strawberry shortcake) without the frosting so I just added it into my butter moist yellow cake mix. It tasted just like strawberry cupcakes and had this orange-y color in the cupcake. Got tons of raves about it. Definitely recommend adding the flavor creations to regular cake mix for some added flavor.


Underbake to get moist fudge-like brownies

Underbake to get moist fudge-like brownies

I have discovered that by underbaking my brownies by five to eight minutes from what the box states I get a more moist fudge like brownie. Underbaking by a bit also ensures I don't get a brownie brick (dry, hard, or burned due to overbaking).
