Steps to make Homemade Cake CrustReady your cake plate by buttering it, then place it aside.
Inside a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Decline in butter and shortening with pastry blender or more forks before the mixture resembles a rough meal. Progressively add enough cold water (a tablespoon at any given time) while mixing having a wooden spoon until a ball of dough is created.
Pour the dough ball out onto a gently floured sheet of plastic wrap and form right into a disc. Gently flour the cake dough disc and put another sheet of plastic wrap over surface of it. Roll in the center until cake dough is all about 1/8 inch thick.
Take away the top bit of plastic wrap, fold the dough over and lay over the cake plate and take away the underside bit of plastic wrap. Press the cake dough gently in to the bottom and sides from the cake plate. Cover the cake plate with a bit of the plastic wrap and put within the freezer not less than half an hour to overnight.
If pre-baking, make use of a fork and gently prick the underside and sides from the cake crust. Preheat oven to 425 levels F and bake for around 8 minutes.
Otherwise pre-baking, simply fill your cake crust together with your selected cake filling and bake based on the cake recipe.
