Sibi said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi,
This is my first cake and really wanted to let u know a big thx, cos itturned out very nice. Used the same measurements however I see that your cake looks a little bit wet and moist. Mine was soft and dry and tasted like a Tea cake. Is that how it is supposed to taste ?. What can I do if I want it to be little Moist?.
Can I use this as a base for a birthday cake ?. Also pls let me know after adding flour can I use a hand blender or fold using spatula. I used the hand blender throughout at speed 1. My nxt try is your choclate devil cake :P..
You are really a star !
Thks
Sibi

mona said... Best Blogger Tips

I follow ur blog regularly. I have followed a several recipes.
ur recipes are fool proof.. u r a live saver arthi... One kind suggestion, I see u use newspaper for seiving and all, Newspapers have ammonia in the print.. Please do not use it. U can alternatively use chart paper or brown paper.

Sudhakar K said... Best Blogger Tips
