Hi I am new to baking .
i have a doubt regarding the measurements used in the recipe
does 1 cup flour means its 110gms and about the sugar used is it icing sugar or granulated sugar because there is a variation there again it will be 110gms and 225 gms respec. Or can suggest some sites regarding the measurements please.
Hi Elsa, I use the standard measuring spoons. In that 1 cup = 235 ml. I've used normal sugar here.

Wanted to make a cake found both (red velvet & chocolate cake) recipes ideal....so just have some doubts can i use sunflower oil/butter....and coming to the frosting in the chocolate cake should we heat the mixture/ beat till it combines.My hubby's birthday falls on 28th so want to try any one of these cakes...One more doubt can i use powder food colour here....
You can use butter. If not yu can use olive oil or vegetable oil. I havent tried with sunflower oil.
About frosting, I have mentioned 2 types of frosting in chocolate cake. In frosting 1, we need the chocolate bar to melt. Hence we heat the mixture. But be careful to heat on a very low heat.
In frosting 2, we just mix cocoa powder. Hence it is enough to just mix together with a spoon till everything combines together.
You can use powdered food colour too.
