Hints and Tips

TIP 1 – SIEVE!
Remember to sieve your dry ingredients. This ensures your cake has a light and fluffy texture.
TIP 2 – NO PEEKING!
Once your cakes are in the oven, avoid opening the oven door. It could affect the oven temperature, causing your cake to suddenly collapse and flop.
TIP 3 – LEMONS
If your lemons are too hard, microwave them for a few seconds. This way you’ll get more juice from your lemons.
TIP 4 – INGREDIENTS
Always have your ingredients laid out in the correct order; that way you won’t miss any steps in a recipe.
TIP 5 – EGGS
Crack each egg into a bowl separately. Then if one of your eggs is off it won’t ruin your batter.
TIP 6 – SKEWER TEST
Check your cake is cooked by inserting a skewer into the middle. If it comes out clean, it’s ready!
