Are you a cake lover? I just love them! Especially a chocolate cake is the biggest weakness of mine. The rich, moist, delicious and brown texture just makes me go mad to try it. And, the best thing that I do to take care of this passion of cake eating is that I have mastered the art of baking a good cake at home itself. Baking a cake for yourself at home is fun and exciting. However, while baking a cake at home you we will have to ensure to get it done in the right manner, else all pain goes in the drain. A true cake lover would know, how disappointing it is when you wait for hours to get that perfect cake done and it does not taste that good as it looks. Along with the taste, there are a lot many things that one needs to look into while making the ideal dessert.
Once, the cake is ready the first thing that we all look out is! Of course, its appearance as how it looks? Ask any cake lover as what is the first source of temptation in a cake and the answer would be- its appearance. Especially, if the cake has been prepared for a special occasion then one must ensure to give that perfect look so that it is able to create that excitement and also matches the occasion. Not only cake should look delicious but attractive too!
Smell is another indication to mark the quality of a cake. It is the aroma that helps that tickles our taste buds and cannot make you wait even a second to try it. A great cake will smell fantastically. It would be something like you just cannot resist from rubbing it on yourself.
How the cake feels, when you stick your fork inside the cake. If the cake is a good one that is if it is soft and moist then it will easily crumble under your fork. And, if it is dry and tough then it will not cut so easily and it creates a negative impact. Even the texture of a cake plays an important role in tickling the taste buds of a person and tempting one to try it.
Of course, this is the most important of all! Something that looks good and smells good and does not taste good is of no value. A good tasting cake should taste sweet but should not be too rich that you may fall ill. Whilst buying a cake, ensure to make an effort to taste it before parting with your cash. On the other hand, when you cook it ensure that you follow the recipe carefully.
Finally, a good cake will be long lasting that can be eaten for months.
