Tips to prepare a cake
1. You can use butter instead of vegetable oil to make the cake. If you are using butter instead of vegetable oil then melt it before whisking with the egg.
2. While mixing the dry ingredients with the egg mixture, donít beat it too much. Just beat it as required to break the lumps and for all the ingredients to get well mixed.
3. Preheat the oven before baking.
4. Donít open and close the microwave too many times to check whether the cake is cooked or not, it will spoil your cake.
5. When the cake is baked, insert a knife in the cake and take it out. If the knife comes out clean, then the cake is well cooked.
6. Powder the icing sugar before beating, if itís in lumps.
7. Take out the butter to use in the cake from the refrigerator some time before the cake is being made.
