When it comes to making and baking homemade dessert cakes I like to use recipes that are easy to prepare, bake up quickly, and taste delicious. When you use gelatin in your cake batter recipes it adds a nice flavor and coloring to your dessert cakes. It will make a boxed mix taste like a homemade gourmet cake.
Each of these recipes starts with a boxed mix that you spruce up with a few additional ingredients. When the recipe calls for a box of gelatin it is for the standard (not family-sized) box. You can top these desserts with a glaze, frosting, or icing of your choice or see the recipe for suggestions.
Lemon-Lime Gelatin Cake
- 1 box lemon-flavored cake mix
- 1 box lemon gelatin mix
- 1 box of lime gelatin mix
- 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
Add gelatin mix to the dry cake mix. Proceed to make the cake following directions on the package. Pour the batter into a prepared baking pan that has been greased and lightly floured. Bake according to box instructions. Mix lemon juice and confectioners sugar together. When it has finished baking, prick with a fork all over while it is still hot and pour lemon/sugar mixture evenly over the top. This will make a nice glaze when cooled. Store in an airtight container until serving time.

In this article, we’re going to share 5 tips with you about finding the ultimate best. Read these points and be sure that you’re making the right choice.
1. Pick a proper size
Imagine a hot summer day and dozens of people asking for cocktails. What’s a cocktail without ice? What happens if you can’t serve everyone because your machine can’t make it?
When you’re buying a new one, always make sure that you’re getting a capacity bigger than you’ll actually need most of the time. There’s no problem if some of the ice is left unused, but it’s a great problem if there’s no ice to be used.

Many people are afraid to cook fish at home because they think it’s too fragile. Knowing a few simple facts can change this attitude forever and bring this lovely and nutritious dish into your home cuisine.
Buying the Fish at a Trustworthy Market
The people handling your food are as important as the food itself. Shopping in a market with a clean environment, a good reputation and employees that follow safe handling practices is crucial in securing good, safe food products to eat.
The Fish Should Look and Smell Fresh
Then use your senses to take a good look at the fish itself. It should look fresh and it should smell fresh. If it has a strong “fishy” smell, don’t buy it. That can be an indication of how long it has been out of the water and/or if it was stored at cold enough temperatures. If you are buying a whole fish, its eyes should be clear and not sunken in. The gills, the skin and the fins should all be moist and elastic. Pressing your finger on the skin of the fish should not leave a dent. It should be firm and nothing about the fish should look saggy or limp. The inside of the gills should be a reddish color and the fish should not be torn.
Buying the Fish as Close to The Time of Preparation as Possible
If you need to buy it the day before, it’s important to keep it as cold as possible. … Read More ...
