Tips to bake the perfect Cake

Be thorough when greasing and dusting your pan! tube pans are full of creases and your cake could stick easily. Make sure to remove your cake from the pan after 15 minutes and not longer to prevent from sticking.

When you bake your cake make sure you use room-temperature eggs and butter. They will blend more evenly in your batter and will help your cake rise more than if you use them cold.

Keep an eye on your baking time, to avoid over-baking your cake, or it could end up dry and crumbly. Try sticking a toothpick in the center and remove it from the oven when it comes out clean.

And lastly, let your cake cool completely before you drizzle it with your honey glaze, to avoid finishing with a melted mess.
