Melting Chocolate

Melting Chocolate

Unsweetened baking chocolate can be melted in the microwave. Melt 1 square on HIGH (100% power) for 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds stirring just until chocolate is melted.


center "humps" in cake

center "humps" in cake

my mom had this info back in the 70's from a decorating class she took. Back then she would use strips of towels that would fit around the outside of the cake pan. Wet it with cool water and wring it out . . . pin it in place around the outer edge of pan and bake. The reason for the "hump" is that the out edge bakes first and has time to settle leaving the inner "hump". No need to cut off the excess. Wilton makes these insulated strips that I have inherited from mom. Works every time!!!!!
