Baking Tips

ALWAYS SIFT FLOUR ~If you don't have a sifter, you could even beat the flour with a fork or whisk.

WARM EGGS~Warmer eggs are easier to blend than colder ones, and this makes a difference when baking. Simply take out the eggs in advance to allow them to come to room temperature.

SOFTEN BUTTER ~Softened butter creams much more easily

RESIST THE URGE TO PEEK ~ When something is baking, just don't do it. Every time you open the oven, you let out some of the heat and reduce the temperature, which affects the baking and baking time.

FOLLOW THE MEASUREMENTS ~Baking is a science, so there isn't a lot of room for alterations without changing the final result. When following a recipe, it is best to follow it completely at least once before trying different variations.

SET A TIMER ~ This helps with resisting the urge to peek and keeps you from forgetting about the cake you just spent 30 minutes preparing.
