10 Best Cake Baking Recipes



As soon as we listen to the word ‘cake’, our hearts are filled with joy, happiness and yes, there’s a lot of craving too. The cake is a mixture of sugar, flour, eggs, and many other ingredients to create different flavors. Cakes do not just make our moments great, but also make our special events memorable with their unique and juicy flavors. Most of our happy events cannot be considered complete without cakes, and these are a vital part of our birthday parties and weddings.
Sometimes, it is better to receive training or a cake baking class to learn different recipes around the globe. Let’s have a look at different types of cakes and how you can prepare them for your special occasion.

Buttercream
In buttercream cakes, we use a mixture of butter, milk, and sugar. It is first whipped to be made into a smooth paste. This smooth paste is used as a buttercream on the sponge of the cake.

Fresh cream
Fresh cream cakes are very light because there is no use of butter as its topping and decor. While making these, you just have to mix and whip the cream until it gets very fluffy. At this point, you may just add a little bit of frosted sugar. Fresh cream cakes are very juicy and light and that’s the reason that they are chosen for most occasions.

Mousse Cakes
Mousse cake is mostly a no-bake cake. These are made by whipping egg whites or by whipping cream or sometimes both. It is then flavored by adding coffee, chocolate or other fruit purees. These also are very light and fluffy cakes.

Fruit cakes
Fruit cakes are usually eaten along with tea. These are made simply by making a mixture of the sponge cake and chunks of different fruits. The final result is a mesmerizing cake with amazing fruit aroma.

Sponge cake
A good sponge cake has more eggs and less baking soda. To make this cake, you can simply create a sponge with the cream and then add different flavors to it, such as vanilla, chocolate, and coffee, etc.

Cupcakes
The one-bite cupcakes are highly liked due to being tiny and delicious. These are baked in cupcake molds. Present these as a starter at any occasion and you will win the hearts of your guests.

Muffins
These are another type of cupcakes, but they are filled with chocolate, jam, butter or a fruit puree of choice.

Customized cakes
Whether it is a birthday party or baby shower, customized cakes is in fashion as these are served mostly at theme-based parties.
