Yes JD, friends keep bringing eggs so I'll make them a cake. Would be great if I could convince them that they needed a THX. Am working on that though.

I am really getting worried though, haven't had a failure with anything yet. Used lots of forum recipes, recipes from EDC and Indian.

Thank you everyone. I shall try out your suggestions next week. Will be busy baking for orders this week.
But I do agree with some that the mixer is better when mixing batter and removing. But i shall keep an open mind. ;)

Do you sell your cakes jflim?
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I used to use a kenwood mix master to make cakes.  Every cake and muffin that I have made in TM  is light and fluffy - a great sucess, i can't imagen using anything else to make my cakes or muffins.
I usually make an old faithfull with cream http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=4426.0 I have to admit I have never made any of the cakes in the cook book, they never really appealed to me.

Hello meganjane,
Yes I do sell my cakes whenever there are orders by word of mouth. Smiley
Hello berringamababe,
Thank you. Will try it out once I get my oven checked and fixed. It's been ruining some of my recent cakes, sigh...Smiley
