“Whoopie Pie” Cake - Tips and Tricks
• Cakes for American cake will be more fragrant and rich if you add a little coffee to them. It can be dissolved in milk, kefir or in other liquid basis.
• Any cream will be more tasty if you add vanilla to it, which does not follow the recipe. If dessert is for adults, then you can pour in some fragrant liquor.
• If the cream is not whipped up to a thick foam, the cream turned out to be liquid, then gelatin will come to the rescue. Dissolve it in a small amount of water, combine with the main mass and wait a bit. Of course, he will not add pomp, but the cream will be thick and will not drain from the cake layers.
