Tips To Make A Perfect Cake At Home

  • Check Your Ingredient List

Despite it seems obvious, many young bakers have learned the hard way: Always run through your ingredients list before you begin baking. So that you can ensure that you have everything necessary to create a tasty cake, you can check what you have on hand. Such as ganache, caramel sauce, or even some simple whipped cream.

  • Always Crack Your Eggs Separately

Instead of cracking the eggs directly into the creamed butter and sugar, crack them into a separate bowl. The last thing you want to worry about is having to fish out broken eggshells from your batter.

  • Use Mayo & Make Buttermilk

Make your cake ultra-moist by adding this secret ingredient. Making a cake richer by blending mayonnaise into wet ingredients is an excellent way to enhance its flavor.

Are you out of buttermilk to make your favorite pound cake or red velvet cake recipe? If you need one quickly, make your own. Put 1 cup of regular milk and 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a cup and let it sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Use it as a simple swap in your batter.

  • Don’t Over-mix, Don’t Under-mix

If the recipe calls for mixing the batter with an electric mixer or with a whisk, make sure you mix it just until the ingredients are combined. If you overmix the batter, whether it be for cakes, cupcakes, bread, muffins, etc, the baked goods will have a tough texture because you are deflating all the air and overdeveloping the gluten.

Don’t turn on the mixer then leave the room! As well, don’t undermix. All ingredients should be combined, of course.

  • Tap Your Pans

How do you get rid of little bubbles in a baked cake? Be sure to remove all the air bubbles from the batter before baking. You should tap the bottoms of your cake pans on the counter just before putting them in the oven.

  • Use Parchment Paper Rounds

Make sure you have quality cake pans first. No matter what size or brand of cake pan you use, make sure you prepare it properly. Using parchment paper rounds is a good idea. Make a parchment paper template of the cake pan’s bottom. Take the parchment circle and cut it out. Next, lightly grease the cake pans with butter or nonstick spray. Usually, I use coconut oil nonstick spray or “baking spray” with a little flour. 

Grease the parchment round as well, then place it inside. You should grease both the pan and the parchment. Your cake will have an ultra-non-stick environment. No sticking at all. When I’m in a hurry to bake a cake, I keep a stack of parchment rounds on hand.

  • Avoid Opening The Oven Door Too Much

When baking, avoid opening the oven door unless you absolutely have to, as this can cause your cake to sink in the middle. As the cake bakes, don’t open the oven 25 times. This lets in cool air, causing the rising cake to sink as a result of the dramatic temperature change. The same reason cheesecake can develop cracks is temperature change.

  • Bounce-Back Test

Using a toothpick, you can determine whether a cake is done. When a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, the cake is done. However, I do something else instead. Don’t waste your time looking for a toothpick:

You can either remove the cake from the oven or leave it in. Apply gentle pressure to the cake. When the cake bounces back completely, it’s done. If you left a dent in the cake with your finger, it needs more time. It’s so easy. It’s what I do every time! The same trick can be used to make muffins and cupcakes.

  • Storing & Transporting Cakes

Room temperature is the best temperature for cakes unless otherwise stated. If you prepare the cake one day in advance, you can bake and cool it, then cover it tightly and keep it at room temperature. The fresh frosting tastes best, so put it together and frost it on the day of serving. Keep frosted cakes covered in the refrigerator if you plan to store them. Make sure it’s at room temperature before serving by placing it on the counter. I include make-ahead instructions with all of my cake recipes.

  • Bonus Tip: Easy Decorating

As far as cake decorating goes, I prefer a classic and simple approach. Most of this is due to the fact that I don’t have much experience with intricate decor. In my experience, I am an expert at making EASY and BEAUTIFUL cake garnishes. My favorite cake style is naked since it does not require any special skills. You only need two piping tips to make these buttercream flowers. You can also try two-toned frosting roses! Easy and beautiful, whipped cream swirls are perfect for my lemon cake.
