Simple ingredients plus double chocolate frosting equals the only yellow cake you need. Seriously, you can throw away Aunt Sara’s yellow cake recipe right now and start your own beyond awesome yellow cake tradition!
Light and fluffy is just one of the secrets to an amazing cake. Be patient, gentle and make sure the batter is exactly that — nothing less, nothing more.
Oh, and don’t forget to use butter instead of oil! Makes a huge difference to create a super-rich, dense gorgeous cake. Trust me on this one!
But there are two other very common, super-bug mistakes that novice bakers make over and over again. Ready to hear them?
Many novice bakers leave the cake in the oven too long. What problem does this create? An over-baked cake is dry — bone dry. Yucky-nobody-wants-to-eat-it cake is the final result of an over-baked cake, so keep an eye on this gorgeous yellow cake!
OK. Number two mistake. Always, always, ALWAYS be patient and let the cake completely — I mean completely — cool before frosting. Do you see a common problem here? Most novice bakers hurry through the process of creating a beautiful, dive-in, super-moist, dee-lish, melt in your mouth cake. They rush through mixing, cooling and then forget about the baking part and overtake the cake.
Don’t rush off when you’re baking a cake — your cake creation needs your attention. Once the cake is completely cooled, frost, decorate and then you can forget about it until ready to serve!
