So I just discovered something, or rather lots of somethings, and I am now wondering how on earth I survived all these years without knowing this. Who keeps such secrets from me? I learned to bake many, many years ago and had no idea that there were some cool and simple baking shortcuts I should have been using all along. Baking hacks are truly some of the neatest time-saving tricks I’ve learned this year. For years, I’ve been trying to make the edges of my pie crust look like my mother’s only to discover using tongs makes nicer edges than even Mom can do. Wow. Call me impressed. From cake decorating tips and tricks to easy ways to keep things clean and neat looking while baking, you are going to love having these little tricks in your baking arsenal. But please, please do me a favor and share them with people. These have been secrets for too long!
