  • Add remaining water to remaining drink mix in medium bowl; stir with whisk until mix is dissolved. Gradually stir in sugar until blended; drizzle over cake. Garnish with frozen zest.

How to Test Cake for Doneness

To prevent overbaking, check cakes or cupcakes at the minimum baking time indicated in recipe. Insert a toothpick in centre of cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. If it does not come out clean, return to the oven for a few additional minutes before rechecking.

Stocking Your Kitchen

Cooling racks are a must for the kitchen if you plan to do a lot of baking. This piece of equipment is necessary for proper cooling of cakes, cookies and other baked goods and for protecting countertops. Buy strong racks for durability and strength.
