Do you have any baking tips for beginners?

If you are new to the baking world, then there are a few things that you can do to make your journey easier. The most important thing to remember that baking is like a science, and it is important that your measurements are correct. Prior to beginning, prepare all your ingredients ahead of time, laying them out on the workspace so that you know what you will need next. Read through your recipe carefully, and ensure that you preheat the oven to the required temperature. Plus, depending on the recipe, it is usually better if your ingredients have reached room temperature before you begin. If you are making cakes, it is important not to open the oven while they are baking as this can have a negative effect on the rise of your bake. Finally, always allow your baked goods to cool fully before you begin the decorating process.

What do I need to know when using chocolate?

If you plan on making your own chocolates, then the only limit truly is your imagination. There are so many sweet treats that you can make with the number one favourite ingredient. First of all, consider which type of chocolate that you wish to use. White can be particularly challenging, and it is always recommended that you melt chocolate in a bowl over boiling water. However, it is important to remember that getting water into your melted chocolate will ruin the consistency. If you are pouring your melted chocolate into moulds, it is recommended that you hold the mould at an angle as you fill it up and then gently tap on the surface to remove any bubbles. If you are hoping to add a chocolate-y touch to your cake, then check out the selection of moulding chocolate that we have available here at Spotlight. You are sure to find all that you need to create chocolicious goodies at Spotlight's guaranteed low prices.
