Marie-Antoinette is attributed to have said "Let them eat cake"...........Linuxmom says let me show you how to make cake. Cake is perfect for the beginner baker and is a great introduction to cooking for children. Here you will learn how to make a simple cake from "scratch". A cake straight from the heart.
Step 1: Prep and gather
The first step in making a cake is to ensure that you have all the ingredients needed. Nothing is worse than to discover in the middle of mixing the batter that you've run out of eggs or baking powder.
Beginner bakers should assemble all ingredients in the work area. (LinuxH4x0r know that "mom" just checks the cupboards to make sure she has everything.)
Next preheat your oven and prep the pans you will use.
Cupcake pans should be greased and floured. Alternatively, use paper liners.
For round cake pans, line with waxed paper then grease and flour.
Square pans can be greased and floured.
