Spring baking tips and tricks

Like us, Bridie loves spring as it is the time for desserts to blossom with light and bright designs, and delicious flavours. She uses her trusted Kenwood Chef XL Titanium to help her create her delectable desserts and has shared her key tips to get you through the spring baking season.

Light and fluffy cakes are perfect for spring, to nail an even consistency, Bridie uses the Kenwood Chef XL Titanium Creaming Beater to whip the butter for the cake mixture. The wings work around the sides of the bowl unlike that of other stand mixer bowl tools. It works wonders on delicate mixtures, creating an airy foundation for your mixture.

Lemon meringue is a popular flavour of choice in spring. Bridie heats her egg whites and sugar to 71ºC to ensure the meringue is pasteurised and well combined. A trick she suggests is to double boil the mixture. Use your Kenwood Chef XL Titanium to combine the mixture, then place the Titanium bowl over the top of a pot of simmering water for a few minutes to heat the meringue. You can then place your Titanium bowl back on your stand mixer and use the Balloon Whisk to whisk the meringue.

Another filling Bridie loves to create in spring is berry compote. Consistency is key and a syrupy compote runs the risk of leaking out of your cake layers. To avoid this and keep your layers' stable, pipe a buttercream 'dam' between your cakes to keep the filling where it needs to be.

Flowers are Bridie's favourite seasonal decoration. If you want to try something different to buying edible flowers, she suggests growing your own organic flowers such as violas, marigolds and dianthus. These flowers look stunning on a cake, and can be eaten and enjoyed.

She also states the bigger the blossom, the better! Big blossoms are great additions to cake decorations, however, they must be prepared correctly. Ensure you wash your fresh flowers and free them of dirt and bugs. Never insert the stem directly into the cake, and use florist wire or tape to seal the stem before adding to your cake. You can also dip the flower stem in food-safe sealing wax to stop contamination.

Use this spring to get creative with your cake decorating, and make sure you check out Bridie's Instagram for further inspiration.

As Bridie says, "make sure you bake up a storm!"

The Kenwood Multi Smart is the total beginning-to-end meal solution – delivering assistance from meal preparation all the way through to cooking and cleaning. You can control the KMS from your phone, as it works in harmony with six pre-set functions to make the most out of meal times. These programmes enable you to create main meals and sauces, to steam and stir-fry, as well as make desserts. KMS ambassador Jessica Rowe (a self-proclaimed 'crap housewife') uses the KMS to synchronize meal times with her family and works in tandem with the KMS to create a range of meals fit for all occasions. 

The KMS fits comfortably on your bench top and using the app you can choose from over 500 recipes and can even filter food type, meals, occasions, total time, diet type and difficulty.

The machine also comes with the Drop Scales connected to the app that gives you full control of each step and correctly weighs out each ingredient. As the Drop Scales weigh your ingredients you can use the Direct Prep attachment to slice, grate, and prepare your ingredients directly into the KMS bowl.
