When baking, folding is a method used to incorporate more air into the mixtures. In order to fold, you need a spatula or a spoon. Carefully pour mixture A into mixture B a little at a time. Take the spatula, scrape the bottom of the bowl, and take mixture B and "fold" it over the other mixture. Do not simply stir, as that would dispel the air and make the cake heavy. Continue to scrape the bottom of the bowl and flop the mixture A over mixture B until well combined!
