When seeking cake recipes and cake recipe tips, look for desserts your customers are familiar with (like chocolate pudding cake) as well as more exotic desserts (like mandarin orange cake)...and don't neglect cheesecakes, either. When researching cake recipes, try the following:
1. Seek an online cake recipe that appeals to you.
2. Buy a cake recipe book written by an established cookbook author.
3. Test several cake recipes and cake recipe ingredients in your kitchen, choosing only the very best concoctions for your customers.
Select an online cake recipeRecipes found online have the advantage of being free, and often they are reviewed by fellow cooks (although most are amateur). Although it makes sense to look for a cake recipe at a well-established recipe website, don't neglect smaller websites dedicated to desserts.
