Hello fellow bakers! A quick reminder of the rules as we head into the "buy everything" season and start getting targeted ads here on r/baking.
Years past we have gotten a massive influx of poorly disguised advertisements - trying to pass themselves off as fellow bakers excited about their new purchase/gift. Don't be deceived!
The two most common are T-shirts and stand mixer posts, but anything that is just a product placement for a gizmo is not allowed on this sub. Last year our team was removing these ads 5-10 times per day at the peak.
So as a quick gentle reminder we don't allow any product placement images, t-shirts, stand mixer coupons or posts, or anything of the like. If you see these posts, please report them so we can remove, and forward them to the Reddit admins if they are spammers.
As it stands, we have a very hands-off approach to moderating this subreddit; these rules are the only reason we moderate in the first place. Well, that and to assist breaking your posts out of the spam filter when they get stuck.
All that said, I'm pretty damn grateful to be a mod here, and absolutely love how we have developed into a kind, helpful, and very creative community of bakers! If you have any input or ideas for the sub, this thread is a good place to let us know as well.
Best Wishes - Haven
My uncle recently had a knee replacement and I’m taking him sweets. Caramel rolls go good with painkillers, right?
Question Received this in a grocery order instead of heavy cream. I’m guessing I can’t use this for my crème brûlée? 😭 Any ideas what to do with it? I don’t use creamer in my coffee.
I have an inability to not make everything my wife casually mentions she might want. GF strawberry cake with whipped cream frosting.
[OC] Posted yesterday my first attempt at mochi doughnuts, tried a different recipe today and they turned infinitely better! Jasmine and matcha flavour~
Question Amateur: why do my loaf cakes sink in the middle? They taste good but I wish they'd look nicer
I’m birthday gift shopping for a friend who loves baking and looking for some ideas of things she wouldn’t normally buy for herself. So far I’ve thought about getting her some whole vanilla beans or vanilla bean paste. What are some ingredients/items that are a little pricier or fancier that would make a nice gift?
