Tips

LOWFAT

LOWFAT

I AM WATCHING MY FAT INTAKE SO I PURCHASE MY FAVORITE FLAVORS OF DH CAKE MIXES AND I SUBSTITUTE THE OIL FOR "PARKAY" OR "I CANT BELIEVE ITS NOT BUTTER" LIQUID SPRAY (NONFAT), THE EGGS WITH LIQUID EGG SUBSTITUTE AND THE WATER WITH MILK OR FRUIT JUICE THAT MATCHES THE CAKE FLAVOR IE., PINEAPPLE OR STRAWBERRY. I THIN FROST WITH A LINE LAYER OF DH FROSTING OR MIX FAT FREE COOL WHIP W/ DRY INSTANT PUDDING AND CRUSHED PINEAPPLE OR STRAWBERRIES. SUCH A GUILT-FREE TREAT!!


Moist cake tip

Moist cake tip

My cake decorating instructor told us (16 years ago) to add 1 tablespoon of mayonaise (not salad dressing) to any cake mix (except pudding cakes) and it makes the cake moister since mayo is pretty much eggs and oil. I've been doing this ever since and cakes are great!
