How to Bake a Cake

Dear Aspiring Baker,

I love cakes! Whether for birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations, or just because, a homemade cake is a treat any time and for any occasion. Cakes also can be as easy or as complex as you want them to be. You can buy cake mix at the store and add eggs, or you can make it entirely from scratch and embellish it with artistic frosting.

I’ll let you in on a secret, though. You don’t have to be a professional baker to make a dazzling cake. There are some easy ways to make any cake look impressive. Layered cakes, fondant, and custom-colored frosting are just one class away. Don’t worry; I won’t spill the beans on your new superpower.

Watch the How to Bake Cakes class, and you’ll feel confident the next time you need to bake a cake. I’ll take you step by step through five different recipes, provide clear instructions, and share plenty of tips you can use anytime you bake a cake. And along with these oh-so-tasty recipes you’ll get a handy frosting dying guide, so you can create any color frosting you want for your next culinary adventure!

Join the RecipeLion Gold Club, and you can watch the How to Bake Cakes streaming-video cooking class with me, Chef Addie Gundry, right now!

How to Bake Cakes

One cake that’s a real showstopper is the Rainbow Swirl Cake. Believe it or not, this is a really simple cake, and once you get the technique down, you can turn this into a themed cake for anything you want. Make it the colors of your favorite team, use pastel colors for a spring party—the options are endless.

The easiest way to make this recipe is to start with a box of white cake mix. Once you make the batter, divide it evenly into containers. I went with four (one for each color), but you can use more or less depending on how many colors you want. Add a few drops of food coloring to dye the batter, and mix it in.

Once your batter is ready, start layering it into your cake pans, just a little at a time. That’s it! Pop it in the oven. When the cake is done, give it time to cool, then frost one layer, top that with the second layer, and frost the cake. Add sprinkles for color and you are ready to impress your guests.

Learn to make the Rainbow Swirl Cake right now in the How to Bake Cakes class—then discover more tasty recipes for any occasion, with the many classes in the RecipeLion Gold Club’s Library.

In the How to Bake Cakes class, I’ll walk you through everything you need to bake a cake from start to finish. You’ll also get the accompanying digital cookbook with complete recipes, full-color pictures, and plenty of cooking tips from a professional chef. In addition to the Rainbow Swirl Cake recipe, you’ll get the full recipes for:

  • Sugared Cranberry Cake—This three-tiered exposed cake literally sparkles from the sugar-coated fresh cranberries. The white chocolate frosting is the perfect complement to the rustic nature of this cake. So good!
  • Homemade Fondant—There’s a rumor going around that fondant is hard to make. I’m here to tell you that’s not true. I have a recipe that only uses two ingredients. You can use it to drape over a cake or make decorative toppings.

The recipes in the How to Bake Cakes class take the mystery out of making beautiful cakes. You don’t have to worry about a thing, even if you’ve never baked a cake before. Before long, all your friends will be asking you to bake cakes for them! Don’t miss the recipes for:

  • Raspberry Pink Velvet Cake—Raspberries and cream cheese are a match made in food heaven. Making a cake from scratch that tastes this good is such a rewarding experience. It doesn’t hurt that it’s a beautiful cake, either.
  • Chocolate Basket Cake—This is the most adorable little cake! Even though it’s easy to make, the decor (fresh blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries) makes it look really impressive. And Kit Kats are a key ingredient, so you know it’s going to be yummy!

And don’t forget, you get more than just the video class. You get the accompanying digital cookbook with full-color pictures of each recipe, and you get all the instructions in written form—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.
