Cake Questions and Answers (Q&A)

The most significant difference between cake and all-purpose flour is the amount of protein contained in it. The protein in the flour influences the amount of gluten created while kneading the flour. Gluten is the ingredient that makes the end product either tough as in bread or airy and flaky as in cakes or pastries.

Cake flour is called "weak" flour as it’s key ingredient is soft wheat. All-purpose flour lands somewhere in between weak and strong as it requires something like bread flour, which includes more hard wheat to be called strong flour.

All-purpose flour is not as intricately ground as cake flour due to which there is a difference in texture. Cake flour is composed of soft wheat, while all-purpose flour is a combination of both.

Pancakes and pikelets look similar; the main ingredients used in their preparation are the same. These include flour, milk, and egg, but their appearances, texture, and sizes are quite different. Pikelets are either eaten cold or hot in countries like Australia, Scotland, New Zealand, and many others, while pancakes are eaten in countries like America, Germany, France, and many others. Pancakes are usually served hot, and taken at breakfast time.

The serving time might change depending on the location or region where one lives. Pancakes vary in sizes from 2 to 12 inches in diameter; while traditionally, pikelets have prepared to be between 3-4 inches in diameter. Pikelets are heavy; but pancakes are light, thin, and flat.

Both Gum Paste and Fondant are used for decorating cakes. You might easily confuse the two while decorating your cake because Gum paste and Fondant are both pliable doughs and they are made with sugar. However, despite the fact that they share some similarities, they are different from each other when it comes to how they are used and what they are used for.

Fondant is a pliable icing and is made from powdered sugar, gelatin, water and glycerin. When you apply it on a cake, it hardens the cake very slightly on the outside and the inside remains soft. And because of the softness of the inside, it makes it desirable for eating but to make designs out of it might be very difficult. While Gum paste has a composition of vegetable shortening, eggs or meringue powder and powdered sugar. It can be used rolled to look very thinning and when applying on cake, it dries off completely unlike fondant which slightly dries off. Gum paste can be used to make a lot of designs on the cake.

Cake pops are similar to making a cake or cupcakes. You will take your favorite cake mix and make the cake according to the directions. You can also make a cake recipe by using a homemade recipe. When you make the cake, you will not put the cake in a regular cake pan. Instead you will need to have a cake pop cake pan. They will make the cake pops round.

Before you bake the cake pops, you will need to insert a cake pop stick into each cake pop batter so that it sticks up. Then bake the cake pops according to the directions in the oven. When you take them out, they should look like a round ball of cake on a stick. Then decorate the cake pop with icing and decorations.
