What if I am not ready to use the buttercream immediately?

If you aren’t ready to use the buttercream immediately, place it in the refrigerator with a piece of plastic wrap pressed firmly against it.

However, when you are ready to use it, you will need to heat it again. Also, do not try to beat the buttercream right out of the refrigerator otherwise your buttercream will separate.

Tips for making Elvis banana peanut butter cake

  • Once the cake mixture is made put it straight into the oven. Note that the raising agent will begin to work once it comes in contact with any of the wet ingredients. Thus, to ensure your cake rises well, make sure it goes into the oven immediately.
  • Preheat the oven for the required time. If you put a cake into an oven that’s not hot enough, it will affect the way it rises
  • Mix the required ingredient until the mixture lightens in texture and color. This will increase the air and volume of the cake, giving you a lighter result.
  • Don’t mix too hard or under mix: When mixing the batter with an electric mixer, simply mix until they become well combined.
