Tips

Freeze jelly Rolls

Freeze jelly Rolls

When making jelly rolls it is ideal to freeze the roll once it is made. Freezing makes for easy handling and assembly on cakes.


For a Moist Cake

For a Moist Cake

The main reason cakes become dry is they are over-baked. As a rule, check the cake at the shorter end of the baking time range. If your cake doesn't test done with a toothpick, return it to the oven for the full baking time.
