How to Make a Cake

Making a cake is a simple process that can be completed quickly and easily with the help of a few ingredients. Whether you’re looking for a classic birthday cake or something new and exciting to add to your repertoire, these recipes will have you baking up a masterpiece in no time.

Classic Birthday Cake: This recipe is perfect for all kinds of birthdays, but it’s especially special on those special days when you know the person celebrating is really into cake! What you’ll need: 1 3/4 cups (420 grams) all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, 3/4 cup (180 ml) sugar, 2 large eggs, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract.

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter and flour one 9×13 inch baking pan. In a medium bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on low speed or with a whisk attachment, mix together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix in the salt and butter until well combined. In another bowl or in the mixer’s jug half full of ice water, beat together the sugar and eggs until light and creamy.

Add the vanilla extract, then pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and mix just until everything is wet enough to make a smooth batter but not too thin so that individual drops fall off your spoon when you spread it out on  the counter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting or serving. 

When it comes to cake frosting, there are a few things you need to keep in mind: the consistency of the frosting needs to be thick but spreadable, and it should be easy to apply. To achieve these goals, use ultra pure cream chargers. These chargers produce a smooth, creamy frosting that is perfect for covering cakes and cupcakes.
