WHY IT WORKS – Baking soda is an alkaline and your body’s sweat is an acid. When the two combine, gas is formed, causing the instant evaporation of the sweat.
A large part of your basic baking recipes will call for either butter or margarine. Buy them in stick form for easier measuring. A lot of recipes call for eggs. Try to use large ones whenever possible. Another refrigerated item you may need for a baking project is milk. Substituting non-fat for whole milk may change the richness of the finished product so keep that in mind.
Children learn how to bake by watching their parents. Bring the kids into the kitchen with you the next time you plan to make some wonderful baked goodies. This is a wonderful chance to teach your children how to bake while spending some fun time in the kitchen. Not only will you be giving your children some useful tips on how to bake, but you will also be creating some special memories as well.
Carefully read the entire recipe before baking. This may seem obvious but it will ensure you have enough time and all the necessary ingredients to ensure baking success.
Know Your Oven – The first few times you follow the same cake recipe, pay attention to how your oven functions. Does it have any hot spots? Does your cake get more brown in the same spot every time?
For baking cakes, you will need cake pans of different shapes and sizes. You can also look for different cake stencils in order to decorate the cakes you just baked.
