The word ‘baking’ brings both excitement as well as a feeling of nervousness especially in beginners. Once beginners start preparing different recipes, they often feel nervous or are doubtful in trying their hands on baking. Definitely baking itself is not as easy as it looks but it is also not that challenging if the beginners follow some of the baking tips mentioned below. Let’s get started.

Tip 1: Follow the recipes as it is:

Baking is not just confined to preparing cakes or cupcakes. In fact, there is more to it. As a beginner while you are searching ‘how to make cake’ recipes to prepare in oven, your Google search ends up with multiple recipes. So often beginners get a bit carried away and they mix up recipes to create something different and hence it does not turn out to be the way it should be. Hence, it is advised to follow and stick to one particular recipe while baking. 

Tip 2: Prepare and arrange the ingredients in advance 

It is wise to set up your ingredient tray rather than hunting for them while baking. It often happens that beginners start with the steps and end up realising that certain ingredients are either not there with them or they are unable to locate. So, by keeping everything handy, it will be easy for beginners to be confident and preparing the recipes with ease. 

Tip 3: Ensure ingredients are sift dry

The ingredients such as sugar, baking soda, baking powder, flour, cocoa powder, etc are the most used dry ingredients in baking. Ensure that you have sifted them before using. This makes them lighter and involves air. In addition to it, sifted ingredients make it easy to mix in the batter or dough. This further gives a uniformity to the mixture for baking. 

Tip 4: Use butter paper or parchment paper

This is one of the most useful and practical tips for beginners. To play safe and come out with a successfully baking experiment, it is wise to use parchment paper on the baking tray. This avoids any sort of sticking while removing the cake. Though one can use butter or oil to grease, but then there is nothing safe and best than a parchment paper. 

Tip 5: Get the right equipment 

Even if you’re a beginner or a non-regular baker, make sure that you have the right equipment for baking in your kitchen. From measuring spoons, cups, weighing scale to baking utensils, it is wise to keep your kitchen upgraded with that. This makes sure that your baking will get the right support and environment to proceed ahead with confidence. 

Tip 6: Adhere to temperature mentioned in recipe

While following the recipes, you might come across temperature degrees. As a beginner and even as a pro it is essential to adhere and stick to those degrees. In case there is any fluctuation in that, you might end up with an unsuccessful outcome. So, next time when you are baking black forest cake recipe for your loved ones, do adhere to this tip. It will help!


So, now that you have such handy and wise baking tips to follow, it won’t be difficult to bake delicious recipes. All the best.
