Cake Tips
Tip 1
To avoid a wonky cake, make sure your layers are neatly trimmed. For a straight top use a cake leveller and for the sides place a cake board slightly smaller than the cake and trim off the cake crust using a serrated knife!
Tip 2
Test bake your colours with a cupcake to help you decide on a shade of colour!
