1. Preheat Your Oven

Preheating your oven is an essential step when baking. It allows it to reach the correct temperature before you put in the cake, thus preventing cracks.

You must be mindful of the size of the cake pan you use as well. Using an incorrect pan size can result in uneven cooking and spoil your entire cake. 

3. Do Not Overmix Batter

Overmixing the batter ends up adding too much air to it and can cause it to rise quickly. Mix only as much as required to prevent the cake from cracking.

4. Do Not Open Over Door

Opening the oven door while your cake is baking can be tempting; however, it can drastically drop the temperature and cause it to crack.

Once your cake is baked, you must allow it to cool down. If you take it out immediately, there is a high chance of it cracking, as it is quite delicate.
