Use a scale!Purchasing a good-quality gram scale (preferably digital) is an investment that will pay back dividends. You will be able to duplicate your favorite recipes to exacting specifications and minimize mistakes in the long run.
Keep a notebook handy!By writing down your recipes as you create them, you will never struggle to remember if you used two teaspoons of baking powder or three. Also, you can highlight your favorite creations and write down tasting notes next to them.
Be creative!Just because you are making a coconut cream pie doesn’t mean you have to follow the rules! Yes, baking is a science more than cooking, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change flavors now and then. Mix some pineapple with the coconut for a tropical creation, or mix blueberries and strawberries for a tart, tasty treat!
