We love baking, but let’s face it… all of us could take advantage of tips to make us even better in the kitchen. Here are some of our favorite baking tips: 

11 Baking Tips

  1. Use aluminum foil (#1963) to resize your baking tray. Just fold the foil the length of the tray, and walla! It’s like a brand new tray! 
  2. Use a toothpick as a guide before writing on a cake, that way you make sure everything looks good before fully committing.
  3. Use a cookie cutter as a stencil for sprinkles when decorating cakes. 
  4. If you’re really craving muffins or cupcakes but don’t have liners, try using parchment paper (#1153) instead. 
  5. We all know the “put a slice of bread in with your cookies” trick, but next time you bake a cake, try putting bread slices on the ends where it has been sliced so it doesn’t dry out. 
  6. If you have unflavored dental floss or twine sitting around, use it to evenly slice cake or baked goods like cinnamon rolls. #probaker 
  7. Always start a baked recipe with room temperature eggs and butter. If you forgot to set your eggs out, just place them in a bowl of warm water for a couple minutes! For the butter, try grating it or putting it in a ziplock bag and pounding it to soften.
  8. Fill cake tins only 2/3 of the way up, leaving room for the batter to expand and rise as it bakes. 
  9. For perfect slices of dessert, try running your knife under hot water, wipe it off, and slice! It will slice through your treats like butter! 😉 
  10. If you don’t have a piping bag, try using a gallon Ziploc bag (#1979). Just cut off a tiny bit of one corner tip after filling it. Along with that, to fill your piping bag easier, try putting your piping bags inside a tall drinking glass. Once the bag is in the cup, fold the top part over the sides then fill with ease! 
  11. Sift your dry ingredients! This is a step we are all #guilty of skipping, but it makes a huge difference.
