How to Bake a Cake

It is important to have baked a cake with rich and smooth surfaces, so you ensure a good result when the cake must be decorated using bakery supplies.

Do you baked a cake that crumbles or having distortion, the cake also appear skewed when the garnish, and it can be difficult to stack the cake in several layers.

When you select a baking tin, it is important it completely straight and solid sides. Beware of using silicone molds, as they often will get a skewed edge sides when the cake rises in the oven. Although I use the molds from the “PME”. They are extremely robust, and have non-stick coating, so the cake easier drop shape when baked. They fit together in size (there are about 5 cm difference from one size to the next), which gives a great result if you need to make cakes in several floors.

How much cake you bake?

Before you begin to bake the cake, so it’s a good idea to make you realize how many people will be baked cake, so you choose the right size form. There are plenty of things to take into the equation, so give it a thought, which company is involved and what the guests have eaten before they reach the cake.

Here is an indicative table that can give you a guideline of how many people are in different sizes molds. The calculation is made based on that cake is about 7.5 to 8 cm high. The instructions are given two numbers. The low figure is if the cake is served, for example. a reception or garden party, which is not served anything other than cake. The high figure is if the cake is served after a 3-course menu.

Round form ø = diameter number of servings
10 cm 3-4
15 cm 7-9
20 cm 12-15
25 cm 20-25
30 cm 28-35
35 cm 38-48
40 cm 50-62

 

square shape number of servings
10 cm 4-5
15 cm 9-11
20 cm 16-20
25 cm 25-30
30 cm 36-45
35 cm 49-61
40 cm 64-80

 

heart shape number of servings
15 cm 7
20 cm 12
25 cm 17
31 cm 27
36 cm 37

What cake you bake?

When the correct form is found, you must decide which cake you want to bake. You decide, basically, what cake you want to bake. It must just be stuck in it, so it does not collapse when you decorate it. In order to cut the cake into the cake bottoms is a good idea that is not too large pieces of example. nuts in. You can easily make a cake for example. nuts, but just make sure you get them chopped fine.

There are two different ways to bake the cake. Either baked cake bottoms one at a time until you have three in the same size, or you can bake a whole cake and divide it up into three cake bottoms, when the cake has cooled. I prefer to bake the bases from which an ordinary cake and divide it up into three afterwards. It provides a more uniform and just look at all the bases, and it facilitates the work to get the sides to be straight when the fondant come.

Preparing the mold

There are several ways you can make sure that you can get the cake out of the mold when the cake is baked. Whether you use a standard form or spring form you can either:

Smear the baking pan with margarine at the bottom and cut a piece of wax paper (to fill the bottom) and put the baking paper on top. Subsequently, the mold is filled with dough.

 

Or you can spray your form of fat. Hold the spray 15-20 cm from the mold and spray evenly around the entire shape – layer must be very thin and may not be adequate. Subsequently, the mold is filled with dough.

I use the “Bake Easy” from Wilton. You find the product  right here.

The last method is preferable because here you are sure that there is no cake back in shape.

 

Fill the dough into the mold to 2.5-3 centimeters from the edge and behind the following recipe directions. In this guide I have used the following recipe: Ingredients 300 g butter 4 eggs 6 dl sugar 9 dl wheat flour 5 teaspoons baking powder 4 tsp vanilla sugar 4 tablespoons cocoa 3 cups of milk Melt butter. Beat eggs and sugar for a light and airy eggnog. Mix all dry ingredients and stir them into the eggnog along with the melted butter. Add the milk and stir it all into a smooth dough. Pour the batter into a cake pan and bake your chocolate cake in middle of oven for 30-35 min. I used to preheat the oven to 190 degrees. When the oven is hot, put the cake into the middle level of the oven. After about 15 minutes I screws down to 175-180 degrees and bake the cake is ready.

If you need to bake a cake that is over 25 cm in diameter or length, the cake should have a longer cooking than the recipe directs, and it may be an idea to turn it down a temperature relative to the recipe. It is not unusual that a cake in a mold of 35 cm must have 2.5 hours although there is one hour in the recipe.

 

Let the cake cool in the mold before turning upside down and put the cake on a flat surface. When you can touch the mold without burning yourself, gently pry the cake from the cake tin. Let the cake stand upside down until it is completely cooled.

 

When the cake is completely cold you can cut it up, or get it in a bag and freeze it if the cake is baked in advance and only to be used later.

To cut the cake to cake bottoms

The cake is cut up by providing it with the right side down. Make a plan with a bread knife into the cake just below the place where you can see the cake is raised from (the cake will typically bulge out from the place). Set kagedeleren the same height as the scratch and “run” from side to side with kagedeleren while pulling toward you. Keep to the cake is cut up. Now the top cut off, and you now have a whole cake. You can now choose to proceed to “opsmørring” of the pie, “or you can choose to cut the cake into the cake bottoms and get stuffed in the cake.

 

If you want your cake bottoms for a cake with stuffing, repeat the above principle. Cut a rids 1/3 from the top and use kagedeleren to cut the cake up with.

 

Move the cake base and share the rest of the cake about half.

 

I recommend that you use a cake to share to get the best result. Cut the cake up by eye with a knife you risk it being skewed – and you have only one attempt!

Do not have a cake to share, or bake you a cake that is too large to use a cake to share, use as a bread knife. Make a small scratch all around the cake. It is important that the stain of the same height all the way around (use. A block at the desired height to support the blade so you do not cut crooked). Now cut deeper into the cake after it rids who just cut into the cake – keep cutting deeper and deeper all around, the cake is cut completely.

Getting filling into the pie

Take a cake bottom and place it on a cake stand where you want the cake to stand. Use a dish without edges, so it facilitates when the fondant to be on.

 

Spread the filling on top of the base and smooth it out so that it is flush with the edge. I use a palette knife, but you can use a regular knife. Be careful not to get too much out on the edge of the cake. Fondant, as the cake later are covered with, can not stand to get in touch with berries, fruit juice and cream, as “acid” will cause it to melt. Place the second cake base on top and came fill in and finish with the last cake bottom.

 

Scrape any excess filling, flush, and there will be a completely straight edge. Let the cake stand and “sit” in the refrigerator – like the day after the filling has set a bit. Now you can opsmørre your cake.

 

I use this recipe:

  • 100g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 100 g of powdered sugar.

Stir together with an electric beater. Keep until it becomes soft and is linked (this may take several minutes)

If you use a different recipe for butter cream, it is important that it does not contain berries, cream or fruit juice, since it gets the fondant to melt. For example. using royal icing or Nutella instead.

Apply a thin layer of butter cream on the whole cake. This is done partly to make the fondant to “stick” themselves to cake and partly to “close” any acidic ingredients inside, so it does not come into contact with the fondant. So it is important that the whole cake is covered with a small layer.

Here it is also important to get straightened butter cream evenly so that there are “bumps” on the cake. Use example. a palette knife to smooth it out nicely with.

 

Ask the cake in the fridge for about 15 min as butter cream solidifies. It makes working with to coat the cake easier.

You are now ready to upholster the cake with fondant.
