Tips

Level rising cake

Level rising cake

Cut a circle of wax paper for INSIDE bottom of your cakepan. Wrap the OUTSIDE of your pan with a strip of towelling that has been made wet and squeezed out. Secure with metal paper clips, holding towelling together like a sandwich. DO NOT GREASE PAN. Pour cake mix into pan on top of wax paper circle. Bake as directed on box. Cake will come away from pan when finished baking. Do not have light on in oven when baking. It adds more heat on the side of the light. Old wedding cake baker.


Always freeze and toast nuts

Always freeze and toast nuts

Nuts stay fresh longer when stored in the freezer. Before using them in a recipe I always toast them in the over, 350 degrees for about 5 to 10 minutes just keep an eye on them and stir them a few times so they don't burn. The 5 to 10 minutes if for FROZEN nuts. If they are not frozen it may only take a few minutes. The heat helps to release the oil in the nuts which results in more flavor for your baked goods.
