  • When using two fillings (jam and cream), spread each one on a different half of the cake and then sandwich together.
  • .If you haven’t got time to decorate your cake then wrap it with cling film and leave in the fridge overnight before you decorate it.
  • Incorporate dry ingredients together with a whisk before adding them to wet ingredients.
  • Always start and end with dry ingredients when alternating with wet ones.
  • .Ingredients for cakes should always be at room temperature.
  • Put a tablespoon of tapioca into your apple pie, it will absorb excess water while baking.
  • .Store flour in an airtight container as it keeps better that way.
  • .To keep cartons of double cream fresher for longer, turn the carton upside down in the fridge.
  • If your custard goes lumpy then quickly pop the base of the pan into some cold water and keep whisking until it is smooth again.
  • For firmer whipped cream, beat with honey rather than sugar.
