Wouldn’t it be great to go into a bakery and be able to order any cake off the menu without thinking: Is this going to make me sick? Those bakeries are few and very far between, but being able to make my own cake and not get sick is a definite possibility!
I love to bake! And there is something so comforting in know that when you follow a cake recipe, combine the ingredients just as they say and bake at the right temperature that the result is something edible and delicious you can enjoy. I mean, what is more enjoyable than a slice of warm cake covered in frosting???
However, I do know that baking isn’t for everyone and it can seem daunting when a recipe says, “use a stand or hand mixer” and all you’ve got is your hand and a whisk. But don’t get discouraged, not all recipes are like that, and if you want to try your hand at cake or cupcake baking, we’ve got a recipe for you.
