So, I get asked a lot about baking and what's hard to do in the kitchen, what's easy and well...lots of other questions!
But, here's something basic, necessary and only a phone call away! Get your oven calibrated! Have you ever put cookies in the oven on 350 degrees, for the amount of time you're supposed to cook them AND they come out burnt :( Nothing smells sadder than burnt cookies! Often our ovens get hotter and hotter and we have to adjust the temperature as we cook! So frustrating!
Here's how to fix it, call the gas company (if you have a gas stove) and tell them you want to schedule an appointment to get your oven calibrated. They'll come out about a week after you call, and they'll be at your house for about 30-45 minutes.
The gas company isn't going to fix your oven's temperature, they just set your dial to read the new hotter temperature, does that make sense?? The only way to actually fix your oven's temperature is to call a service company to come and install a new thermometer in your oven...and that is expensive!
Calibrating your oven is an easy, quick fix that will help you bake at the right temperature. No more burnt cookies, uneven cakes, or other baking debacles! The guy who calibrated my oven let me know that my oven was cooking 40 degrees hotter than normal! Yikes!
I hope that helps you just a smidge in your kitchen!
P.S. YES! That's my oven! No double, triple professional oven for me! It's still on my wish list :)
I made these Circus Cupcakes to celebrate a little gal turning 3! The clowns were handmade out of fondant and the hair was made of buttercream icing! I put some balloons on the rest of the cupcakes to add to the circus flair!
Just think what we can create for your next party!!
Our Summer Sampler was a HUGE hit! I had my biggest selling sampler yet! We sold 68 samplers and include two new flavors, Banana Split and Salted Caramel. I had so many gals email me to tell me that Salted Caramel was their new favorite flavor of all time! And I have to agree with them!
Salted Caramel is vanilla buttercake with a whipped caramel frosting with a twist of salt on top. Who doesn't love the taste of salt and sweet!
If you missed out, don't fret! Salted Caramel will be in our Halloween, Candy inspired Sampler!!
