Hi!! 

I would recommend checking your oven… buy an oven thermometer, set it to a temp on your dial and check that the oven heats to what you set it too.  Baking can go very wrong if your oven isn’t correct.  Also if you have a FAN oven you should reduce the temp by 10%

Butter and sugar mix perfectly when at room temp…and eggs should also be at room temp otherwise you may get a curdle.  Adding a spoonful of the flour can ‘save’ this.

Read all the recipe first before you start… prep as much as you can before you start… 

PREHEAT the oven….very important.

Hope that helps grin

Thanks
James
