Baking is both a science and an art. This means that you not only need to use a certain set of techniques to get the best results, but that you will need to develop a feel for what you’re doing to be able to combat any unexpected problems that come up. Over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!!), I put together a list of 15 Tips for Baking Success. These tips range from simple to advance, but are good advice for bakers of any level. Since the New Year is a good time for New Year’s resolutions, resolve to up your baking game in the coming year and have your oven turning out delicious and beautiful baked goods for your family and friends.
The list only as 15 tips and it was hard to cut it down to that many. If you’ve found any baking tips over the years that have given you an edge or a lightbulb moment (i.e. left you wondering why you didn’t think of that sooner!), share them in the comments! You can also search through the archives of my How-To’s and Tips category, which is packed with answers to a wide variety of baking questions and many tutorials.
