Cake is a sweet form of baked bread or bread-like food. Cakes normally contains a combination of flour, sugar, eggs, and butter or oil, with some varieties also requiring liquid (typically milk or water) and leavening agents (such as yeast or baking powder). Flavorful ingredients like fruit purées, nuts, dried or candied fruit, or extracts are often added, and numerous substitutions for the primary ingredients are possible. Cakes are often filled with fruit preserves or dessert sauces (like pastry cream), iced with buttercream or other icings, and decorated with marzipan, piped borders or candied fruit.
Cakes are seeping in tradition in India during anniversaries, birthdays and other celebrations. There are countless cake recipes; some are bread-like, some rich and elaborate, and many are centuries old. Cake making is no longer a complicated procedure; while at one time considerable labor went into cake making (particularly the whisking of egg foams), baking equipment and directions have been simplified so that even the most amateur cook may bake a cake.
However with the increasing awareness about healthy eating habits people are increasingly searching for healtheir options to satisfy their sweet tooth. A fun, delicious Cake is something everyone looks forward to, but the biggest challenge is to keep the excitement going and keep things healthy. At RealCake we believe that making a healthy cake is all about substitutions of certain ingredients like sugar, butter, oil and flour, as well as using less frosting or glaze.
