Dental Floss Is the Best Cake Knife

We love sharing our cheesecake recipes with you, and we realize cutting one of these can be a challenge. Use unscented dental floss for a fast and clean fix.

Use Unsalted Butter instead of Vegetable Oil

Using a boxed cake? It’s ok. We don’t always have time to create one from scratch. Instead of using vegetable oil, replace this ingredient with unsalted butter. It will make for a fluffier, more delicious cake!

Muffins Tins are Versatile!

A muffin tin can be used for so much more than just baking your morning muffins. Try using one for some incredible desserts, like these Muffin Tin Jelly-Filled Doughnuts, or these Cherry Puff Pastries.

Ice Cream Scoop Your Cupcake and Muffin Batter

If your muffin tin recipes are not measuring out the same, use an ice cream scoop to fill each tin evenly.

Wine Bottles are for More than Drinking

Is that rolling pin already dirty? Or maybe you just don’t bake enough to have one on-hand? Grab a bottle of wine and start rolling that dough. Make sure it’s empty or corked well, as spilling the wine isn’t ideal!

Use Marshmallow Creme Instead of Whipped Cream

If you’re using whipped cream and need it to stabilize enough for a particular shape or consistency, use some of our Marshmallow Creme to thicken it up!

Make Your Own Brown Sugar

If you completely ran out of brown sugar and don’t feel like running back out to the store, have no fear. Make your own brown sugar with white sugar and molasses.

Warm Glasses = Melted Butter

Use a warm glass to cover any butter that you need softened or slightly melted before baking. It’s easier than microwaving!

Spray Your Measuring Cups

Use non-stick cooking spray in your measuring cups to prevent the stickier ingredients from sticking to the cups.
