Types of Cake

A cake is a sweet baked food that is made from flour, sugar, eggs, and flavouring agents. This batter is then baked to create a light, fluffy bread-like product. A cake can be plain or decorated with different elements. In addition, it can contain different flavors or fillings, such as fruit compote, caramel, or whipped cream.

Cupcakes are small, round cakes that are filled with pastry cream, fruit, or a combination of these. Cupcakes may be filled with either frosting or fruit, and some are topped with a variety of cake decorations. These desserts are typically baked in a muffin tin. Traditionally, these pans are made of metal, but some are made of silicone rubber and stoneware. Standard cupcake tins are about three inches in diameter and hold four ounces of batter.

Pound cake

Pound cake has a unique texture. Its batter should be creamy and smooth. The pound cake should be baked for at least an hour and ten minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. The cake should rise quite a bit during baking and turn golden at the top. If you want to avoid over-browning, cover the cake with aluminum foil after the first half hour of baking. A slice of pound cake is best served fresh.
