Tips

Fast & Easy Cake pops

Fast & Easy Cake pops

Need a quick breakfast sweet or a quick dessert idea? Pick up some donut holes. Put each one on a stick. Make your own frosting with powdered sugar, vanilla and water. Dip the top in frosting, let a little drizzle down sides. Sprinkle on nuts or sprinkles on tip. I like Krispy Kreme's Blueberry glazed donut holes best for this. I also prefer glazed holes rather than cake donuts. Stick two sticks in breakfast fruit for a nice touch beside scrambles eggs on plate.


Spliting cake layers

Spliting cake layers

I have found when I need to split one layer into two I use thread to cut through the cake. It is easier than trying to get them even using a knife. Once I get the thread even around the cake I cross the two ends and pull them crosswise which cuts the layer of cake into two pieces. You can also use dental floss but make sure it is not flavored as it sometimes will leave the taste behind on the cake.
