Tips for Baking Cake Recipes with Cake Mix
Flouring Cake Pans: When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead- no white mess on the outside of the cake.
Frosting a Cake: When frosting a cake, eliminate crumbs by having the spatula only touch the frosting, not the cake itself. Use dabs of frosting to "glue" the bottom layer to the serving plate to hold it steady as you frost the cake. When frosting a two-layer cake, place 4 pieces of waxed paper on plate to square it off. Place first layer on plate, upside-down (flat side up). Frost bottom layer then place top layer flat side down and frost as usual. When the cake is frosted, pull gently on waxed paper strips until removed. Plate is clean on edges with no clean-up!
Slicing Cake Layers: If you have to slice cake layers in half (as in preparing a torte), get out your sewing thread. Position the thread on the far side of the layer and see-saw through.
