Am making my first wedding cake on the 15th. I test baked the yellow butter wedding cake frm the Cake Bible, pg 484, and baked the two six inch layers and there is the remaining two 9 inches to bake. I have made small batches earlier, so I was pretty much confident in doing the batter all at once as per specified instructions.
For the first time ‘ve encounterd my cake to have a slightly but definitely bitter after taste. Could it have been the baking powder? It was fresh, not even a month old. And each ingredient was weighed and then added as per instructions. All the essential guides to baking a cake were taken care off.
The cake has a soft texture, melt in the mouth and all that, (slightly crumbly a wee bit i must add) but the lurking aftertaste kills it all.
How could this have happened? Would love to know, am non plussed! Thanks.
