How to Make a Simple Birthday Cake

Have you ever wanted to make a birthday cake for a loved one? Well, here is how
to make a simple birthday cake. All you'll need is a little time, love, and a few items from the grocery store.

You will need a boxed cake mix (the favorite of the birthday person), shortening,
eggs, oil, flour, and birthday candles (the number will depend on the age of the birthday
person.) When you get home, you will need to gather a few items: a large mixing bowl, a
large cake pan, an electric mixer or a large mixing spoon, a spatula, and measuring cups
and spoons.

First, you will need to wash your hands and work area. Read through the
directions on the cake box to be sure you have everything you need. Then, gather all of
your equipment and food items in your work area, organize it according to the order you
will use them in making your cake. Be sure to preheat your oven to the appropriate
temperature before you begin.

Next, put the dry cake mix into your large mixing bowl. Then, put the prescribed
amount of water, oil, and eggs into the mix. Then, with the electric mixer or mixing spoon mix the batter until it is smooth and free of clumps. Next, grease the large cake pan with the shortening. If you wish, you can wrap your fingers with wax paper to keep them from getting greasy. Then, flour the pan lightly. If you do this over the garbage can it will be easier to clean your work area later. Next, pour the cake batter into the cake pan, using the rubber spatula to scrape all of the batter off of the sides of the bowl. Be sure the batter is level in the pan so it will rise evenly. Next, place the cake on the top rack of the oven and bake for the amount of time specified on the box, the time is usually around thirty minutes. While the cake is baking clean up you work area.

After the cake is done remove it from the oven. If you push a toothpick to the
bottom and it comes out clean it is done. Turn off the oven and let the cake cool. After
the cake has had ample time to cool, you are ready to spread the icing on the cake. If you
use a spatula, rather than a knife, the icing will spread easier and will be less likely to ruin
the cake. When the icing is on the cake, place the appropriate number of birthday candles
on it, you are ready to present your simple birthday cake.

There you have it, a birthday cake that someone will be glad to devour. This cake
is easy to make, but still shows someone you care. Be sure to prepare it with love, and
your loved one will appreciate it.
