I have a question about a vanilla cake. Right now I have to work on a 3 tier (plus mickey ears) cake. I have made this vanilla recipe about 5 times, and the last two times came out different.
Once was very dense, the next was light and crumbly. I dont know what I could have done wrong since i've baked this numerous times.
Since my cake will be stacked, I need it to be dense for stacking and fondant.
Do you have any idea how I can make this recipe more dense? or what did I do that I still havent noticed that made it dense before and not light and crumbly?
Here's the recipe/ingredients:
3 cups of cake flour
1 tbs of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
16 tbs unsalted butter
2 cups of sugar
5 large eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
3 tbs of vanilla extract
Thank you so much for your help!
