Yes it is a solution. once you mix it you can't get it back to the original state... =)
Baking a cake is a chemical reaction, meaning that it cannot be described as a mixture. Here's some clues: If it were a mixture, the volume would remain the same before an…d after. A cake rises as it bakes, hinting that a gas is released in the reaction process which causes this. Your products have been used up. The egg is gone, and it's not coming back. You began with multiple reactants (Sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla, water etc.) and now you have a single product: cake. You cannot separate a cake to retrieve initial ingredients. I could mix salt and water, but I could separate them by evaporating the water I could mix silly putty and Playdoh, and while it would be tough, I could pick them apart again. But I cannot remove the egg from the cake. Source: I'm a bored university student studying Chemical Engineering.
Definitely a mixture.
If you want a simple cake mix, cream 4oz of butter with 4oz of caster sugar then add 2 eggs then slowly add 4oz of self-raising flour. But if you want to make a thicker cake m…ix, add more flour!
Yes: a solution is a homogeneous mixture.
A mixture is not a solution if it is in solid form.
It is a mixture.
A cake or a cake batter is a heterogeneous mixture, it contains fats, sugars, starches, proteins and water and these can (with difficulty) be separated out.
well it is introduced into cake mixtures when you open the package.it is also introduced when you mix the mix together Another response: In the process of mixing, air is inco…rporated into the mixture and captured in the eggs. This captured air expands during baking to aid in rising. Cake batter often contains either baking powder, baking soda or both, which also react chemically to produce gases that expand the batter in baking.
yes it can be a mixture, say you put sand in into a bucket of water it is considered a mixture
it is a mixture
It certainly is a mixture.
The cake as a whole can't be called as a compound, but it is the MIXTURE of several compounds.
A mixture consists of two or more substances that are combined together. Solutions are homogeneous mixtures that exist in one phase. An example of a solution is sugar wate…r.
If a cake mixture (batter) is heated, it will begin to bake. The baking powder or soda will produce gas causing the batter to rise. As the cake continues to bake, the eggs wil…l solidify with the flour and sugar and the "crumb" of the cake will begin to form.
