As with any baking recipe, there are some things to keep in mind if something goes wrong with the finished result. Baking a cake is actually quite a science and all of the ingredients in a recipe have a purpose and a precise measurement. If the measurements of the recipe is off, it could alter the outcome of the cake recipes. Many professional or seasoned bakers suggest weighing out your flour, sugar and other ingredients when baking a cake instead of just using the measuring cups and spoons. Different brands and types of flour weigh out differently, so weighing the ingredients can give you a better idea of how much you need in a recipe. Just like in baking bread, if the cake batter is to watery, you can add in some more flour. When you are adding in flour, make sure you do a small sprinkle and stir, check the consistency, and then add a sprinkle more if it isn't where you want it until you achieve the desired consistency. Checking a cake for doneness is simple, you can insert a toothpick into the centre of the cake and pull it out, if the toothpick comes out clean, your cake is baked thoroughly, if there are still remnants of cake on the toothpick, then you should bake the cake for longer, usually five minutes at a time, and then check it again.

Cooling a cake is also very important before putting the icing on it. If the cake isn't cooled properly, the icing will be really tricky to put on. Make sure your icing is also at room temperature and not to cold and hard or warm and runny.
