Remember the cake-making is a precise science. No agak-agak if you want to avoid disappointment.
Follow recipes closely.
Use baking tins of the correct size to ensure even cooking. For sponge cakes, the nine-inch cake tin is recommended for best results.
Do keep to simple equipment. All you need for lovely cakes is a mixer.
Open the oven door during the first 20 minutes of baking.
Overbeat egg whites.
Be disheartened if your cakes don't always turn out perfect.
