HI SISTERS! In today's video, I tried to bake a cake from scratch, with NO RECIPE. Inspired by the Try Guys, I had to guess every single ingredient from my memory to try to bake a delicious vanilla cake and I let my friends try it at the end... enjoy and don't forget to thumbs up and subscribe!!

    The difference between baking soda and baking powder is that baking powder has baking soda in it. They are both leavening tools which means they both make things rise. That’s why there is no yeast in cakes.

    I realize it’s funny and good content to make a cake with out a recipe but next time I would advise using recipe because baking is always exact and when you don’t follow the recipe or use exact measurements then it’s not gonna turn out good

  • Addison Scott

    First off James next time making a cake you have to start with creaming together butter and sugar then add eggs one at a time the alternate between adding the dry and wet ( or we’ll just milk) ingredients ps the first step of baking is greasing the pans and preheating the oven
