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.


Piping bags

Piping bags

I reuse all the bags from cereal, frozen foods, Nilla wafers, cake mixes, anything sturdy enough to hold frosting or batter. I just wash inside and out and air dry. They really do come in handy and are a little more sturdy than the ziplock sandwich baggie. I hope you all can use this tip! I like the fact that i am reusing something that would just go to waste!
