Baking at home can become tricky when it’s something you don’t usually do, especially if you are under pressure to bake multiple things for different people within a certain amount of time. Many people feel that they become too stressed when baking under pressure as they want everything to run smoothly. There are many tips for managing baking and ensuring things run smoothly. Follow this guide to avoid any big problems half way through a recipe to avoid needing to start everything over again.


Following the recipe while baking

It is easier having all the ingredients out in front of you whilst cooking as it means things won’t go missing and they are easier to access. It is also important to follow the recipe exactly as it says to avoid any problems whilst cooking. Adding extra ingredients to recipes such as sugar, doesn’t mean the mix will be sweeter but in fact it can actually unbalance the other ingredients. This could prevent the mixture from forming properly and prevent it from cooking as well as it should. Timings are also very important to follow as they are put in place to ensure things are cooked accordingly.

Cleaning process


It is important to clean equipment as you use it to avoid a bigger mess at the end of the cooking process. It is easier, if when you have a few minutes to spare between something being in the oven or needing to be left to sit for a bit. This can be an appropriate time to move onto cleaning items that might need to be reused for another part of the recipe or just to be cleaned and put away.

Leaving to cool before decorating


It is important to leave something to cool as long as it says in the baking instructions to ensure it is cool all the way through. The cooling stage is very important as if any icing needs to go on or any types of sauce then it’ll melt off and cause a mess and could potentially ruin the full item leading to starting over again. It is also important to take time to decorate to ensure everything looks presentable and has been done correctly with the proper equipment needed for the best results.
