Ever wonder how Pastry Chefs can cut all those mini cakes and pastries in  perfect little squares? The trick is to flash freeze the complete pastry. Then measure out and cut with a warm knife, cleaning the knife after each cut.

How about how our cupcakes are all the perfect uniform size? I use an ice cream scoop to portion the batter out into each muffin cup.

And Voila! Your dessert will be delicious and beautiful!
