Holiday Cooking Tips
1. Heart shaped cake using regular cake pans
Bake one round and one square cake. Rotate the square cake so it looks like a diamond. Slice the round cake in half and position the two halves against the diamond’s upper edges, fitting tightly. Cover the whole cake with frosting and you’ll have a beautiful heart, without having to buy a special pan!
2. Stuffing a turkey
Stuffing needs room to expand during cooking, do not over-stuff. Extra stuffing can be placed in a casserole dish and cooked separately. Don`t stuff the turkey in advance to save time, stuff it right before cooking. Cook stuffing to a minimum temperature of 165Â°F. Stuffing should be removed from the turkey to a separate dish before carving.
3. Storing Leftover Turkey
To safely store your leftover turkey, remove the stuffing and carve the meat off the bones within 2 hours of roasting. Store turkey and stuffing separately in the refrigerator, or wrap in heavy foil to store in the freezer.
