How to Make Flawless Cake: 6 Cake Tips by Erik Blair

Hello everyone, I hooe each of you are doing well. Today I’m going to talk to you about making a flawless cake. There’s some tips I found on Digital Sketching group on Facebook.  Erik Blair shared these tips on Digital Sketching. You cn find his Facebook Pag at https://www.facebook.com/cake.woow2015.

When baking any cake it is better to use room temperature eggs and butter because it will not emulsify properly.  If you forget to lay out the eggs and butter, you can microwave the butter every 5 seconds until softened. To bring the eggs to romm temperature in a short amount of time,  you can add them to warm water.

You can make a cake look as good as it tastes with Real Simple’s cake decorating. Techiques.

Believe it or not, it matters how to measure the flour. If you dip flour out with the measuring curight out of the bag, it will compact the flour.. This will cause you to get out more flour than you need. The best way to get flour out of bag is to spoon it out into a dry measuring cup and use a knife to scrap off the excess flour.

When butter your cake pans, it’s better to use a pastry brush and softened butter. You will swipe the pastry brush over the beutter and the swipe the buttered brush. You will get better coverage this way than with a small piece of butter in the butter paper. I know rubbed the pan with butter paper. I have used the non-stcik spray.

When placing your cake in the oven,  it is best to try to get them as close to the center of the oven as possible. It’s important to not let the pans to touch each other or for the pans not to touch the oven walls. If you have a small oven and the pans won’t fit on ne rack side by side you want to offset the pans slightly to allow air to circulate.

It’s a good idea to rotate the pans after the cake sets about – two thirds of the way through baking time to prevent collapse. By rotating the pans to allow for even baking time.

Now, the best way to cool the cake is upside down.  if the cake is rounded on the top, cooling it t upside down will help flatten it. If it is still rounded you can use serrated knife to cut it t off.

I know that I’ve learned a lot from these tips. They are certainly some great tips for sure. There’s more to baking a cake than just shoving the cake into the oven.

Next time I’m going to tell you how to make a boxed cake taste homemade.  I want to take this time to thank you for taking time out of your day to read my blog. May God bless each and everyone of you.
