EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To ensure recipe success if using a vegetable oil spread, use a spread with at least 65% vegetable oil.

Rise to the occasion! If using self-rising flour, there is no need to add baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add a bit of lemon zing to the cream cheese frosting by substituting lemon juice for the vanilla and adding 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel.
