Music FAQ frequently asked questions.
Why can't I hear any music playing? Cake Recipes have no music.
Music/Midi Files

The usual problem is that there are too many music players installed, and your computer don't know which music player to use. You may have erratic behavior if you have Quicktime installed. Problems include: Only playing 1-2 seconds of each song before quitting or garbled sound when playing.
Do the following:

(1)Launch Windows Control Panel
(2)Click on the Quicktime icon
(3)Using the pull-down menu select the Browser-Plugin option
(4)In the Window, click on the option MIME settings
(5)In the next Window, scroll down until you locate lines that begin with "MIDI"
(6)Click each of the lines until the "+" disappears
(7)Click OK and close the other Windows

Windows media player will now be responsible for playing MIDI (music) files.
This should solve the problem, if not, you may have another unrelated configuration problem with your computer.
Most everyone uses Windows media player. The built in windows media player is all that most people ever need when using the Windows media player for your sound. To adjust the sound to play midi's and mp3s. (newer version) First click on the tools menu on the top bar of your player, (Built in version) use the views menu instead, then click on the options and then click on the formats tab. You will need to make sure that all the boxes are checked for all the types of music files. Do select to play all sounds. This will fix crackly and poor quality sound. If this fails, then change all your setting to not play any sounds and try again.

GO AHEAD AND BAKE,

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
