Flavor melts

I use frosting ceations packets to flavor and colorize candy melt. mix some of the creation in melted vanilla (white) melts until you get desired color and taste. It is yummy and so pretty.

Pan prep

Pan prep

When the recipe says to grease and flour the pan before the mix is poured in I will spray the pan with a non-stick cooking spray and depending on the cakes flavor use sugar or chocolate powdered drink mix instead of flour. I have used sugar as the base for chocolate cakes and it crisps up the bottom nicely.
