Tips For Baking
1) Any cake batter that requires egg make sure you whisk the yolks and whites separately, yolks should be creamed with the sugar while the white is whisked individually and folded in later for a light, fluffy cake.
2) Always make sure that you are using unsalted butter while baking because generally, the butter we get at our homes is salted and that too slowly, which would not be too appealing in desserts.
3) When baking or cooking meats in the oven, always make sure that you place a tray at the lowest level of the oven as the big birds and rabbits tend to have dripping when they are cooking, and the plate would collect all these drippings keeping your oven neat and clean.
4) Whenever you have to bake a cake, always measure out the ingredients correctly as even the slight deviation can affect the results, and to get better results, always mix the dry ingredients with other dry ingredients and wet with wet and combine it all at the end.
5) Many ovens come with preset settings for bread and cakes marked with gas marks, so if that is the case with your furnace, make sure you recognize the gas marks denomination before you start baking.
6) If you are trying to watch your calories or maybe go dairy-free, replace the butter in your bakery with avocado. It gives the same creamy, productive results without any dairy or unwanted calories.
7) If you don’t have a rolling pin for rolling your dough, you can easily use a glass bottle for running it and also use the base of the bottle as a round stencil for cutting perfect roundels.

It is important to cool down the cake before icing it because the cold icing would melt off on a hot cake as a significant ingredient of the glaze is butter. If your cakes and bread are turning out light in color and are not getting that proper golden color, try increasing the quantity of sugar as the color of the crust is dominant because of the sugar caramelizing. If, by chance, you turn your cakes or cookies a little from the bottom of the corners, use a grater and grate off all the burnt ends to have a perfect cookie or cake.
