    Add almond extract to the batter especially if you are using cake mix in a box.  Also, making your own icing will add a little something special.  It can be a process but it is worth it in the end.

    Try to stay out of your kitchen while the cake is baking and keep down any loud noises. The more your cake moves... even little vibrations the more wonderful little bubbles escape and the cake won't come out as fluffy as it could have.

    I totally agree about the almond extract, and about the making your own icing - matching the colour to the plate or paper and accessorising with things that are special and relevant to the people that are eating them! My little one loves bees so we have bees made of icing and yellow cakes at the moment!

    In all my years of experience, it seems to me that there really are some pointers to use for the perfect cake.   1. Beating your batter to the perfect consistency...2.Using the correct size cake tin.  3. Making certain your oven temp is accurate.  4.  Time the baking accordingly.....and finally, try not to open the oven for testing more than once.  Treat your cake tenderly when removing from the oven.....and use a cooling rack to COOL COMPLETELY and evenly.   
    FYI....I love the Pudding Cake recipes.....your cake comes out moist and fluffy!!
