Tips for Easy Cake Recipes

Cake - When baking a cake, instead of dusting the pans with flour, use granulated sugar. The cakes come out of the pan just as easy and taste better with that little bit of melted sugar on them.

Flouring a Cake - 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 serve 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 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 thread on far side of layer and then see-saw through. Also, ice or fill with sliced side down.
