Once the recommended baking time is complete and your timer beeps, check if your cake is done baking. You can tell your cake is done when there is little browning on the edges. At this point, the cake is springy to touch and when a toothpick is inserted comes out clean. If your cake is still not done give it 2 additional minutes and test again. 

STEP 9: Cooling your Cakes …the right way
