Hi CC friends!! I just read a recent post where someone asked if there were any secrets you had that you wouldn't share. Well, I thought I'd ask if anyone has any secrets that they would LIKE to share! I know there are lots of 'tricks of the trade' out there & I thought it would be nice if anyone would be willing to share a few. They can be anything from a 'never fail' recipe to a convienient way to transport a cake. I'll start us off with one of mine. This isn't really a secret, but more of a helpful hint. (those will work too if you'd like to share!) When I'm doing a cake & I'm not really sure how much icing it's going to take, I always make about 1 & 1/2 to 2 times what I think it's going to take. I learned to do this the hard way when I mixed a couple of different colors together to get the right shade & then I ran out about 3/4 of the way through. I tried to duplicate the color but I couldn't get it right & when the cake was finished you could tell I used 2 different colors. So, that's one from me---now, what's your secret????
