I’ve been trying to bake a “perfect cake” but I find difficulty in doing it. I tried different recipes following the exact measurements indicated but still failed to make a good one. Often times, it looks good inside the oven during baking process but once it goes out, biglang nag-iiba.
I also followed different techniques like placing water inside the oven while baking to make it moist, lowering the temperature from 175ºC to 150ºC, using the lower heater only, and many more. Still, it wasn’t a success.
How can I make a nice and “perfect” finished product kung sa cake pa lang bagsak na.
Sabi nga nila, keep on trying then list all the things you made so once succeeded in getting a nice output, alam mo na kung anu ang dapat gawin sa susunod.
Last weekend, it was Mother’s Day, so I courageously tried baking another one. I made mocha cake this time.

While baking the cake, I was got worried because the finished product seems not the way it used to. Medyo matabang pa. I just set the cake aside and proceed in making the frosting.
Again, this gave me worries since this is my first attempt to make boiled icing. At first, it started to curdle as I add the butter and looks watery. I tried to fix it by placing the mixture inside the fridge first then continue mixing, but nothing happened. I made my last option. I added extra butter and after few minutes of mixing, I got the right consistency.
I used to decorate the cake with the Cake Decorating Kit Mommy purchased from Lazada.
Still have excess icing so I used Matthew’s Monde Nissin Fluffy Mamon and turned it into mini-round mocha cake.
