My degree is in Apparel Merchandising; I’m not professionally trained at all in a kitchen. Yet I may have a few tips & tricks up my sleeve that can help a ton when it comes to baking.
1. To change the flavor of your dessert swap out a liquid substance for another. Always make sure the two you are switching out are of the same consistency. For example, this donut recipe calls for 2 tbsp vanilla extract. To make a pina colada version of these donuts just swap out the vanilla extract for pineapple juice!
2. Want homemade frosting but can’t find the perfect recipe? Stop looking because all you need is one marshmallow per cupcake! Top each cupcake with a marshmallow & place in oven for a light broil. The marshmallow will melt in just a minute or two leaving you with a tasty & unique topping. Take it to the next level by topping a chocolate cupcake with graham cracker crumbs on top of the melted marshmallow for a s’more cupcake!
3. Substitute milk in recipes with sour cream. I know it may sound disgusting but it actually gets your dessert to the perfect texture, especially for a cake or cupcakes!
