Y’all, I would not be lying to you if I told you we had two recipe fails simply trying to create a delicious cupcake for this post. Needless to say, baking is not exactly one of my strong suits. But, once we developed the recipe, it turned out delicious thanks to Perfect Bake®.
Perfect Bake® is a patented app-controlled smart baking system that turns anyone into a master pastry chef, guaranteeing perfectly delicious results every time. And, it can do all of this based on what you can find in your pantry. Through the innovative app (available for free on both iOS and Android), you can add the ingredients you have on hand and the app will tell you which recipes you can make. So, if you have guests coming over in an hour, find an ideal recipe to fit your needs based on ingredients in your Virtual Pantry.
How to become a master chef with Perfect Bake:
The App – With the Perfect Bake app, you can choose from hundreds of pastry recipes, as well as add your own. Choose from categories that include cakes, cookies and ice cream, in addition to gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan options. Then, simply follow the color-coded blocks to through the entire process for a perfect pastry every time.
The Scale – Using color-coded bowls to streamline the recipe process, the app guides you through each step. Place the bowl on the scale and pour as directed. After scaling your recipe to the exact number of goodies you want to make, the app will properly adjust the recipe. Then, the scale will advise you when to pour and how much of each ingredient. Ready to pour cupcakes into the cupcake pan? Simply place the pan on the scale and pour the batter. The portion meter will tell you when to stop pouring for the perfect cupcake.
The Extras – Basically, you get several features in these two pieces combined. Working together, not only do you have the Virtual Pantry, step-by-step cookbook, and on-point scale measurements, but there are also three different timers for mixing, baking, and cooling (which can run concurrently). Oh, and don’t forget the Oven Thermometer and tablet/phone stand. Everything you need to create the best tasting dish every time.
