Tips

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.


Add Color to your Glaze!

Add Color to your Glaze!

Sometimes a pure white or cream colored glaze is just so blah looking. Especially when you want more than just taste as appearance also counts. Try mixing food coloring and water together until you've found the color you would like! Reference is always on the back of any food color box anyway. Make your glaze and if it calls for water, use that amount to color with! Remember you don't need much. Experiment a little to get the color choice. Even white chocolate frost/glaze can be colored!
