Baking can be a headache, but it really doesn’t have to be. To ease your baking-induced stress, you can turn to these hacks.
Prevent The Whisker Splatter Blues with A Paper Plate
Cut holes into a paper plate for the beaters, then place it above them. The paper plate catches the back splash and eases post-baking cleanup.
Give Your Frosted Cake a Glossy Finish
Right before serving, use a hair dryer on medium heat on the cake until the frosting starts to melt. The melted frosting solidifies, presenting you with a beautifully glossed cake.
Keep Your Brown Sugar Soft
Store your brown sugar with a slice of bread or a large marshmallow for like-new softness, no matter when you use it.
Keep Your Cookies Moist Longer
Store cookies with an apple slice or an orange peel. The cookie will absorb the moisture, keeping them softer, longer.
Test Your Baking Soda Before
Add a teaspoon of baking soda to a 1/2 cup of hot water. If it doesn’t bubble, it’s time to throw it away.
