What topper should I use for Nescafé cake?

As for the topper, I’ve chosen a cheesy cream topping and Nescafé sauce. Cheesy cream is an amazing mixture of cream cheese and whipping cream that you’re gonna love! Nescafé sauce is an easy sauce made with cream and milk chocolate and has a wonderful sweet taste. I’ve brought you two great options, and the decision is yours to choose whichever topper you prefer!

How do I know whether or not the cake is baked?

If you want to know whether the cake is fully baked or not, other than the toothpick test, you can use the following methods. These work on all cakes:

  • When the cake is done, the smell of baked cake fills the air. This is one of the signs that your cake is ready.
  • When you touch the surface of the cake, it doesn’t stick to your hand. Also, the texture of the baked cake is hard and stable and is no longer in the initial doughy state.
  • When the cake is baked, the initial batter’s color changes into a brownish one. In Nescafé cake, the creamy color changes into brown. Vanilla cake’s batter is milky colored, and after being baked, it becomes light brown.
