Here’s what to do:

1. Pick a reliable recipe from a book, website, or author you trust, and make sure you’re using that book—its front matter, its headnotes, and its ingredient list—as its meant to be.

2. Before you get started, adjust your recipe to fit your pan size if necessary. You don’t want to bake a 10-inch round cake in an 8-inch round pan.

3. Figure out what you need to do to prepare the pan: Depending on the recipe, you may leave the pan bare, line the bottom with parchment and grease the sides, or grease and flour the whole pan.

4. Properly position your oven racks. If you’re baking one cake, position the rack in the lower third of the oven. If baking two cakes on multiple racks, position one rack in the upper third and another in the lower third. Rotate the pans from upper to lower and from back to front a little over halfway through baking time. Claire Teaches You Cake Baking (Lesson 1) | Baking School | Bon Appétit

5. Make sure your leaveners are fresh. It’s more important to be vigilant with your baking powder than your baking soda. Cake Ideas, baking ideas, cake decorating compilation, Ideas, cakes, cake, cupcakes, Decorating, Satisfying

6. Make sure your ingredients are at the temperature specified in the recipe. Cold butter and eggs and no time to wait for them to warm up? No problem. There are fast and safe ways to bring these ingredients up to room temperature.

7. Use a scale to measure your ingredients—especially non-wheat flours. (And make sure that scale is accurate!)

If you’re not using a scale to weigh flour, it’s especially important that you’re measuring the flour the right way: Never shake or tap the measuring cup to settle the flour, or you may end with a dense, heavy cake.

8. Check to make sure your cake is finished before you take it out of the oven. Alice recommends a toothpick rather than a metal cake tester. Cake Ideas, baking ideas, cake decorating compilation, Ideas, cakes, cake, cupcakes, Decorating, Satisfying

9. It will be hard to wait, but you’ll need to cool your cake according to the recipe’s instructions. Most cakes baked in parchment-lined pans can be cooled entirely in their pans on cooling racks. Don’t cool the cake on the stove—it doesn’t make sense to cool a cake in the warmest place in your kitchen. Claire Teaches You Cake Baking (Lesson 1) | Baking School | Bon Appétit

10. You’re so close to victory! Don’t ruin your cake when you remove it from the pan. Detach from the sides of the pan using a knife or spatula, then cover the pan with a rack, hold the rack and pan together, and flip the everything over. Remove the pan and peel off the parchment liner. To turn the cake right side up again, place another cooling rack on the cake, hold the two racks together gently, without squeezing the cake, and repeat the flip.

    Where is the recipe? I dont see it on the website. Disappointed that they are not easy to find….especially after watching ALL of the videos 😔

  4. James Lake says:

    This was super informative. Her idea of showing various mistakes is so helpful to a beginning baker like myself.
    One advanced (to me) cake I really want to master is a multi-layer(6 minimum) Vienna Mocha Torte.

  13. Lily w says:

    why do you use unsalted butter and then add salt?

  16. Yuni Prastika says:

    this channel is amazing!!! i know some people (not just me) tend to fail when it comes to cooking cakes because of those detailed things that are mostly not described in many recipe books such as, don't forget to coat the mold, don't overmix and soooo on. she's clearly explaining and giving examples of the wrong ones! i'm so happy to find this channel! GBU

  17. Tori Bissell says:

  19. Adrianne Ty says:

    I am in love with Bon Appétit and Claire by far has my heart!!

  20. Bdellovibrio O says:

    I was curious what would happen if the reverse-creamed batter was overmixed. She explained that even the vigorous mixing that it does receive isn't enough to match the yellow cake in gluten development, since the fat slows the contact between wheat protein and water. But I imagine there's a point where the batter breaks, and the gluten rapidly starts to develop.

  21. Cindy Sobtafo says:

    I wish they's never stopped doing these lessons
