Baking a cake is an art and one needs to master the art in order to bake a birthday cake. There are easy recipes though for the beginners but one has to get into perfection with those recipes as well. Remember, baking a cake is easy but making the perfect cake batter is what you need to master.


To maintain the right texture of the cake you have the butter or the oil for some extra time and the sugar mix has to be more airy. Beat it till it becomes very fluffy and light but also you have to be careful not to over beat. If you beat it too much then the cake can sink in between baking. Never add all the dry ingredients together in the batter. This will deflate the batter. So it is a good idea to combine all the dry ingredients separately and then add the mixture to it little by little. Then fold in all the dry ingredients gently to maintain the airy texture. The main thing about baking a cake is the precision. You have to weigh your ingredients properly and be strict about the proportions mentioned in the recipe and also the baking time has to be followed accurately. When you are mixing the ingredients you need to allow the mixture to get some air. Check the temperature of the baking oven with a thermometer. Guess work will not work here. When you are using eggs, do not pour them in the mixture by taking it out straight from the refrigerator. It should be at room temperature.
