Tips

Greasing Cookie Sheets

Greasing Cookie Sheets

Only grease your cookie sheets if the recipe clearly calls for you to do so. Cool and wipe sheets clean with a paper towel between batches if necessary.


Cutting a cake

Cutting a cake

When cutting a cake using dental floss works perfectly. Start by wrapping floss around your pointer finger 3 times then unroll enough floss to span a couple of inches longer than the length of the cake wrap your other pointer finger three times. Then position the floss over the desired area and while holding the floss taut use bring down into the cake making a nice clean cut. Continue until the whole cake is cut into pretty uniform slices.
