Expert Tips

Cakes will be soft when first taken out of the oven. Let them cool and firm for a few minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to a cooling rack.

The disposable piping bag can be reused for piping the filling. Wash it in soapy water and rinse well. Towel off water or let air dry for several minutes before using.
