Tips

Flat top Cake

Flat top Cake

If you are looking for a flatter top of a cake, for instance, to lay fondant on or just dont want that curved look on top. Instead of cutting the top of the cake to get that flat look, flip the cake over and use the underside. Its much easier and quicker then having to cut a cake that may crumble and make a mess when frosting. :)


Extra Pie Crust

Extra Pie Crust

If you have any extra pie crust left over, roll it out and spread some cinnamon and sugar over the top. Roll up and cut into 1/2-1 inch slices and bake them while you are baking your pie. Check them regularly so they don't get too brown. Once they are a light golden brown remove from oven and cool. Nice change on a snack idea.
