Baking is so much fun for many people! I know that I love stirring together ingredients, popping them in the oven, and pulling out a delicious dessert.
But for some people, baking isn’t a piece of cake! Even experienced bakers could use a little help from time to time. To make baking easier for all of us, I’ve put together some of the best hacks I’ve found on Pinterest that will solve all your baking problems.
1. When you run out of an ingredient
It happens to everyone…you think you have all the ingredients you need and then you run out of a key element! If this happens to you, don’t panic- just use this handy swap chart from Just a Pinch’s Pinterest!
2. When you can’t get cake pops to not smear
Cake pops are a fun, easy treat to make, but there is one problem with them. When you’re done dipping the pops, how do you let them dry without smearing one side? Well now, you can use this Pinterest hack!
3. You have no piping bags, so you have to make one!
Piping bags or something of that nature is an essential when icing cupcakes. But what if you’ve made your cupcakes and realize you have nothing that you can turn into a piping bag?!

4. When you want the professional effect, but you’re horrible at icing!
I know that I’m awful at icing cakes and cupcakes! I can just never get it right. But thanks to this Pinterest hack, you can fake it ’til you make it with a spoon and fork.
