Creaming together the butter and sugar is a traditional way of starting to make a cake, however many bakers do not mix them together for long enough. Spend at least 5 minutes creaming the butter and sugar on a high speed until the mixture turns extremely light, almost white and fluffy for optimal rise and a lighter cake.
I love the look of a very smooth buttercream and almost exclusively use my off-set spatula for frosting the outside of the cake over the crumb-coat. Once the cake is initially covered, let the knife sit under hot running water for a moment and quickly wipe away the water from contact edge (you don’t want to add water to the frosting). The heated blade will help provide smoothness to the buttercream. Don’t be afraid to return the off-set spatula to the hot water.
We explore other simple cake ideas for family classics too, such as lemon drizzle and easy banana cake. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try our avocado, courgette and lime drizzle?
