Corrections & Enhancements: Rose's Heavenly Cakes

pages 46, 176, & 402 White Chocolate Buttercream: When making the custard base, instead of bringing the temperature to 140˚F/60˚C, it should be 160˚/71˚C (this prevents the enzyme in the egg yolks from thinning the mixture after it is completed).

p. 96 Chocolate Banana Stud Cake, ...set an oven rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350˚F/175˚C.

p. 124 The Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate Frosting, powdered sugar variation: the powdered sugar should be 3 cups/12 ounces/345 grams.

p. 325 The Mini Vanilla Bean Pound Cakes sugar and cake flour weights should be 150 grams for both, and not noted as ounces. The ounce’s column listings are correct.

p. 328 Baby Lemon Cheesecakes, ...set an oven rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350˚F/175˚C.

Thanks to the Heavenly Bakers of the <em>Heavenly Cake Bake Along</em>, most of whom had trouble unmolding the caramel atop the Caramelized Pineapple Pudding Cakes, we have retested the recipe and have come up with some tweaks to make the unmolding much more reliable and effective. Changes are in bold.

p. 460, Equivalences & Substitutions for brown sugar:

The closest approximation of light brown and dark brown sugar is the following. The weight will be the same but the amount of molasses is slightly higher and more similar to Muscovado.

1 cup/217 grams light brown sugar=1 cup/200 grams granulated sugar plus 1 tablespoon/15 ml/20 grams light molasses

1 cup/239 grams dark brown sugar=1 cup/200 grams granulated sugar plus 2 tablespoon/30 ml/40 grams light molasses
