50 Tips for Baking Better Cakes Happy American Thanksgiving! I was sitting here planning a bunch of upcoming baking posts, when I realized that we’ve never really chatted about some of the basic steps that make for consistent baking and caking. I thought that it may be helpful to post these tips now, before we get too hot and heavy into more cake recipes. This collection of tips and tricks is made up of suggestions that happen to work for me, that I have either learned from the pros, read in books, or figured out along the way (and am still learning). I can say that implementing these steps completely changed my life as a baker, and I thought it would be fun to share. I hope that even one of these tips will help you along too. {print} Recipe Ingredients: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 1 large egg white = 37 grams, 1 large egg yolk = 20 grams. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

Hollow Easter egg cereal bar treats Make these easy and delicious rice cereal eggs with your little ones for Easter! They are hollow so you can put anything you desire inside for a nice surprise treat! Ingredients: 6 cups rice cereal4 cups mini marshmallows3 tablespoons buttermedium- to large-sized plastic Easter eggs Directions: You'll make the regular rice cereal treats as directed: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and the marshmallows on high for three minutes, stirring at two minutes. Pour the rice cereal and mix together until the rice cereal is well coated. Wash the plastic Easter eggs and dry. Spray butter spray lightly on the insides of the eggs. Stick little chunks of rice cereal on the inside edges of the egg. Using your thumb, pat the inside edges firmly so the rice cereal becomes smooth and firm.

Gently push down on both sides of the egg to close off any gaps in between.

DIY | Colorful Cupcake Icing Can you believe that every color swatch in the palette below can easily be made from a standard box of red, blue, green and yellow food coloring! Stefanie over at Anna and Blue Paperie shares this lovely icing find from The Food Network. The numbers below each color are the amount of food coloring drops you need to add to plain white icing. Such great color combinations! The numbers below each color are the amount of food coloring drops needed. Never decorated cupcakes before? The Same Sun I was lucky enough to spend some time recently, with dear friends who live many miles away (hence the prolonged absence of posts). I feel blessed to count these people as friends and I’m always a little sad to return home. Coming home from a vacation is always difficult for me, but especially troublesome when I have to leave people I really care about. It brings to light how much I am not a part of their daily lives and routines and they are not a part of mine. But who says I have to run the same route?

Make Your Own: Candy There’s a reason why they put all that deliciously sweet candy up by the cash registers in nearly every store: if you had to find it at the back of the place, you’d likely decide against it before you got up front to pay. But you’re an adult, and once a child sets their sights on a candy bar, there’s no turning back. Instead of worrying about all of the sketchy ingredients, extra calories, additives, and possible allergens in popular packaged sweets, here are a few recipes to Make Your Own Candy right at home. Homemade Twix Candy Bar Recipe Twix bars are the best because they come in a delightful little pair. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups Peanut butter allergies aside, it’s hard to believe anyone could deny anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate. Homemade Gummi Bears Okay, so they aren’t really bears, but gummy stars sound just as cool. DIY Lollipop There doesn’t seem to be much to making a basic lollipop, which leaves the options of using natural sweeteners and dyes.

Charlottes Just like a Charlotte russe, a Charlotte royale can take a variety of forms. This domed version is probably the classic, though I’ve seen lots of flat ones made in rounds as well. They can be just about any flavor. Mango is a true delight. It starts with a sheet of joconde, half as thick as my regular recipe calls for. Loosen it from the pan as soon as it emerges from the oven. Then lay on a sheet of parchment and a rack. Flip everything over and peel away the paper. Apply another parchment sheet and another rack (or an upside-down sheet pan)… …and flip it back. Reader Ed had the suggestion that instead of making one long jelly roll, which would leave leftovers of jelly roll and a bottomless Charlotte, I should use half the sheet for the roll and half for a bottom. …then trim off the crusty edges to make it easier to roll. Now I’ll apply some orange marmalade. Then I’ll just roll up the marmalade-covered half. I’ll wrap that in plastic wrap… There’s my Charlotte bottom.

French Toast Cookies Attention: These cookies taste like french toast, but they also taste just like a brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tart. In other words, childhood, reclaimed!
