Cake baking failures and problems are probably the #1 reason many people give up baking. Here is the ironic thing, any cake baking issue can have a plethora of reasons as to why it happened. However, there is more than just the recipe that can lead to failure, there is more to it than that. I will list a few tips to help you avoid any cake baking problems in the future, or even right now. I will also tell you how you can check your cake batter to make sure you have the right balance of ingredients and sugar.
I have seen a lot of cake baking problems over the years. There are several things that can cause a cake to fail such as improper heating methods, a bad cake mix, or even too much cake mix. If you do not mix your cake batter properly then you are running the risk of the cake developing air pockets. These air pockets are where the cake may break. I do recommend using a pastry bag to mix your batter because this way you do not run the risk of air bubbles releasing and causing the cake to collapse.
The second most common cake baking problems happen when the cake does not come out the way the user wanted it to. This is one of the most common reasons people try and bake in a different oven than what they originally intended to. It is very easy to prevent and solve cake baking problems by following these simple tips: Always use a good recipe, and always make sure to measure your ingredients correctly. Check your oven door to ensure there is no extra heat going inside of it, and make sure you have an airtight lid. If you follow these two tips your cake will come out perfectly the first time!
