Making a birthday cake doesn’t have to be hard. It is great to learn how to bake a cake for family and friends. is so much cheaper than buying a cake at a grocery store, and usually better tasting. I had never baked and decorated a cake before until my daughter’s 1st birthday. After I found out the cost to make a two tier cake, I decided that cake decorating is something I needed to learn. I was quoted over $200 for a cake with more than one layer with buttercream, not even fondant. Some places wouldn’t call me back when they found out I wanted just buttercream. Thanks to my experiences, I taught myself.

I watched tons of YouTube videos and found tutorials online how to do almost every step imaginable. I was totally ignorant to baking and decorating cakes. I think the most valuable thing I learned is how to crumbcoat. My lack of crumbcoating previous homemade cakes explains why my attempt at frosting was less than marvelous. After watching videos and reading tons of articles, I was pretty much able to make classy cakes with ease.

time hog? What’s she talking about? I give her compares to her new diet of cupcakes, brownies, and granola/yogurt smoothies/juices….It’s so easy to just grab a cupcake and leave!

I completely agree with her comment. I spend so UFABET เว็บตรง much time on my own that I could just fill up a freezer ashcan and never leave home with freezer elixirs. I Costco and Sams have made it easy to do day-to-day shopping without much cost or stress.

The only stress I have is when I get to choose what to get at Costco or whether or not to fill up my gas tank. Costco has become a major hassle, but I can’t spend less than $30 right now.

I used to think ‘decent’ cakes would be at least a dollar each. Now I have My Bigger Half’s to thank for that!

Healthier version 2.0

Just as with the first version, I am working on my own version of a healthier version of birthday cake. 0 ingredients in the whole grocery store, and less than $0.75 for each cake. I can’t imagine how much more it would cost to make this version, and I can’t wait to make it.

Lids are almost as important as ingredients. I use lids for storing purposes, to keep the cakes from going off too quickly and for easy entry and exit. I’ve made several kinds of cakes using lids.

In earlier days, you basically knew what a cake was going to cost you. As for the lids, they were cheap. felt kind of cheap. scraping the lids with a spoon is a cheap way to get it done. The original cheap lids spanned out and didn’t have a inside ring. The inside ring may have been cheap. This meant that the cake could not be put into many layers. Both of these aspects are important to remember when designing the lids.

Lids are not only used for cakes, but they are also used for coverings such as fruit and cookies. The latest trend is mini lids. Not only can you use them for cookies, but they come in a wide array of sizes. It’s a good idea to have a wide array of lids on hand, rather than choosing one for a given recipe.

Usability is a consideration. Of course, the lids for cakes are expensive so not everyone can afford them. Still, you can provide different sizes and shapes of lids too. Making your own pancake lids was easy after I found out how much fun it is to make. It is definitely more fun to make a cake than it is to make a simple one, plus the cake will taste much better.
