    Cracking Cake :(

    I actually heard of that solution. I cleaned out the oven after Christmas. I was surprised at the difference in temperature.  I have made a few more cakes to test the theory. It seems to work. I'll make some more and give you my finally comments.

    Cracking Cake :(

    I have adjusted the temp from 350 to 325 since it was running a little hot.  I don't think I am over mixing. Is 90 secs too long?

    Mold Inhibitor

    Lol.. I'll clarify. I sell coffee cakes and a "friend" said that I should use a mold inhibitor so the cakes will stay freash longer.  Personally, I would just rather bake new ones. The information said it was good for candy and pastries, however, I do not think they meant for cakes.

    Does anyone know if mold inhibitors are good for cakes?  If it is does it change the taste of the cake? Dori

    Say what??

    Gypsy, Even though I agree with you about supplementing education at home, I think we need to hold our teachers to a higher standard. My son attends public school due to his need for speech therapy.  I find it very frustrating that I have to correct his teacher's instructions for his homework...

    Homemade Brown Sugar

    I would like to make my own brown sugar, however, I wanted to know if anyone had thoughts as to whether homemade is better than store bought. Also, if I make my own brown sugar will it change the flavor of my cakes and pastries? Dori

    EMERGENCY! I F#%Ked up...

    The easiest thing I found to clean burnt pans was coke. Put some coke in the pan and bring it to a boil. While boiling for a few minutes take a wooden spoon and scrape the pan. The burnt food comes up easily. (Trust me the first time I heard this I laughed. Then I tried it and it worked...

    Pastry flour & Cake flour
