After some advice please all my cakes seem to dip in the middle!
Last night I make a 10" square cake using
550g caster sugar
550g self raising flour
Cooked on gas mark 3-4
I didn't open the oven didn't knock it and it still sunk!!
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
I have been asked to make a cake for a christening and they want Super Baby, does anyone have any idea what this is, they have said it's like superman but a baby. Apparently he had heart problems so they call him Super baby. Anyone got any suggestions how I could make the cake?
Quick question for you all, when you make a sponge cake and say you are making an 8" sponge cake do you make a mix for a 10" cake or an 8" cake? I was always told to make more mix to get a thicker cake, but surely the cake wont be as airy and fluffy if there is more cake mix? Will the cake still rise enough if you make an 8" mix????
HiCan someone tell me how far in advance I can bake a sponge cake.I need to make it for Saturday but I also need to make 30 cupcakes to go with it, I was thinking of baking it on Tuesday icing it Wednesday ready for Saturday, as I need to get the cupcakes done on Thur/Fri. Will it stay fresh?ThanksSarah
Hi AllI am making around 36 cupcakes next week and the only recipe I can find is for 12! Can I just mix 3 times this recipe in the bowl or will it effect the cooking time? If not does someone have a recipe that will make 36 cupcakes? I am in the UK so the amounts in grams or oz would be great.ThanksSarah
