It was a long process and we learned so many nice tips from chef as.
☑️ Importance of right heating temperature.
☑️ Moisture control while you microwave food item ( This one really good tips as I often get my food items dry while microwaving ). So you need to use cling wrap while you microwave.
☑️ To avoid air bubbles in glaze or any medium you need to use whisker at the bottom only and still if you get some bubbles you can use cling wraps to remove from top.
☑️ If you are planning for long term baking you should invest in a good quality silicone moulds that’s maintain shape in regular use and good quality food colour and cocoa powder really make a difference in the final product in terms of taste and colour.
☑️ For getting a good glaze and shine to your cake you need to keep insure the right temperature and time of glaze and cake.
