  5. Hi Bridget

    Need to ask you the best way to avoid mixing of the colured batter with each other..How can I get neat layers…
    Also the condensed milk cakes have a different smell inspite of adding vanilla essense…what else could you suggest.

    Regards

  6. Hi Swati
    You would just have to be careful while pouring the different coloured batter so that the layers dont get mixed. You could wait for about 5 minutes each time before pouring the next layer.

    Adding condensed milk in the cakes does give a different smell. However it cant be helped since we’re substituting Eggs with the condensed milk.
