Cake tips

DSC_0007We have sold a lot of cake mix in the last few weeks and we wanted to say Thank You to all of you pastry ninjas for going on this tasty ride called cake life with us.  With all the feedback we get at the farmers markets and special events we do, I know you have had awesome success with the mix and making it with your kids.  Thanks for coming out to support what we are cooking up.  I wanted to give you a few tips to get more from the cake mix you already love. Lets see if we can get you to be “in love” with it.

  • Mix that cake!! 

Just mix it up and keep mixing, maybe let it rest for a few minutes and mix it again. Why? Well I’ll tell you…. the sugar we use is an Evaporated Cane Juice sugar and the crystals are not as fine as those you see in a packet.  We like good ingredients so the less refined sugar we use is better for you and is taster in your mouth. The larger crystals take a little extra to melt into the batter so let it rest a bit and Mix That Cake!!

  • Get the fat out

Maybe you love chocolate cake but hate fat… well this tip is for you. Replace the oil in the recipe with equal amount of applesauce. Yes applesauce I know that may sound crazy but its not and its not nice to call me names I’m just trying to help. So go here http://goo.gl/aXNDv if you don’t believe me. In fact you can also replace it with coconut oil and that’s good for you so…. talking about substitutions

  • Change it up

The cake is nice and tasty, yes, well how about replacing the water with coffee, you’ll get a nice mocha cake.  Go see our friends at www.gentlebrewcoffee.com/ and get, in our humble opinion, the very best coffee available. Coffee not your thing? Well how about orange juice. Oh its so good! You don’t even know.  Chocolate (almond) milk will give the cake a slightly different texture and a more chocolatey taste.  Maybe add in a small amount of bourbon into the water with a bit of vanilla and get a crazy adult flavored cake that will have your friends questioning their own taste buds.

Go out my Cake Wizards and bake, bake the world and take pictures, cause “pics or it didn’t happen!” Take those pictures and share them with your friends, making them totally jealous of your skills. If your questioned on how you became such a good baker just smile, pop your shirt and say “What you didn’t know”
