Tips & Inspirations

Pour 2-3 cups of sugar into a sealable container. Combine with the zest of one lemon, shake well and store. Lemon infused sugar can be used immediately or kept for months, just like regular sugar.

Keep brown sugar soft by adding a couple of marshmallows to the bag.

To make crystallized honey liquid again make it liquid again, place the honey jar in a container that allows water to move around it freely. Run under a hot water tap (shaking occasionally) until the crystals have melted.

Reuse jelly, pickle or mason jars to keep your cupcake liners and icing tips clean and collected.

For a uniform bake, always scoop and bake the same size cookie. This will ensure your cookies cooked to just the correct doneness every time.

You may substitute these fats instead of oil, but you’ll have to melt it and then measure in its liquid form. Use the exact amount specified in the recipe. Also, remember to cool it down before adding it to your favorite mix.

Butter is the best fat for flavor and appearance. Soften at room temperature before you need to use it.

Check oven temperature with a reliable oven thermometer to be sure it is accurate. Adjust temperature if necessary.
