I love baking. It makes me so happy to look inside the glass window of my oven door and watch a pan of muffins expanding with the heat. It’s like a glorious, homey piece of heaven, and the fact that I was able to craft it with my own hands puts a smile on my face. 

Isn’t it just the worst when you’ve invest time and ingredients (money) into baking something only to have it fail? Or maybe you’re like me in that sometimes I just don’t know when to quit. I’ll decorate a cake, and just keep adding frosting or decorating flourishes until I’ve made a complete mess of the confection.

Check out these smart baking hacks. They’ll keep you on the straight and narrow when it comes to producing great baked goods!
