Fluffy cake s

Fluffy cake s

Hey guys... I have discovered another way to make your cakes more fluffy. What I do is I never put my mix in the bowl first. I put in all my liquid ingredience first: water, eggs, and oil. I start out slowly to blend these items, then I do a hard mix. I always use my wire whisk, too. What happens is you get a frothy look, which means you're adding air to the liquids. Once frothy, I add the mix. Works VERY well. Rises higher too! Try it!

Careful With Frosting

Careful With Frosting

Make sure you go a little slow when it comes to frosting the cupcakes or cake cause you might get it all over you. And make sure the cake or cupcakes are cool or the frosting might melt and have a little space too :) have fun!
