Creaming – A mixing method used to blend ingredients together. This technique is often used when making buttercream, cake batter, and cookie dough.
Proofing– The final rising of shaped dough prior to its being baked
Beating – The process of rigorously mixing ingredients to thoroughly combine them and aerate the mixture.
Curdling – The process of separating a food mixture into its component parts.
