Wouldn't that cause the cake to be more dense? Do you do that for all cakes? Some people do prefer their cakes to be light even if it's a moist chocolate cake.

Nope! I only weight the cake with a couple of empty cake pans, not a cinder block! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif It's sublte, but makes a HUGE difference - for me, anyway.
