    When I lived in Colorado Springs I baked a cake not knowing there was a difference and it did not turn out right. I dont know if you bake from scratch or box but the directions on the box are different for higher altitudes.

    Here are some tips from the Betty Crocker site about baking and cooking above 3,500 feet.  Also, here's some info on cooking/baking specific foods at high altitude.  I hope this helps!
