2.The only thing to be kept in mind while baking a cake in cooker or a vessel is that the cake pan should not directly touch the cooker bottom.
3.Always keep in mind that there should be some medium between the base of the cooker and cake pan like sand, salt or wire stand and cake pan should be placed over these things to avoid direct contact.
4.Never put on any whistle to the cooker while baking a cake.
