Do we really need to use unsalted butter in making cake? What is the different using salted and unsalted butter? Does the salted butter affect the texture and taste of the cake?

Yes it has to be unsalted butter for both cakes and frostings or else your cake will taste salty. Cheers!

I always only use salted butter, and neither my cakes nor my frosting ever has tasted salty.

It comes down to what you prefer... it can't be wrong.

You can use salted butter in baking, just cut down the salt it asks for and it will be fine.

As for my BC, I mix both unsalted and salted butter. The salted butter helps cut down the sweetness.

I always use salted butter and it's fine. No salty taste, in my opinion. I just don't add salt.
