  1. Thank you for sharing. Baked twice, cake rise but when out of oven to cool, it just flattened.Followed recipe closely. Please advise.

  2. Hi, I tried out your recipe and follow every step. It’s my first attempt on cakes. However, my cake is no way near yours. My cake didn’t has the crack at the top and it shrink during the baking process. Could you advise what the possible areas I might have done wrongly?
