1.1 Too much sugar or syrup is used
1.2 To much raising agent was added to the mixture leading gluten structure to collaspe
1.3 The cake has not been cooked for enough time
2 Cake has risen to a peak and cracked on top
2.1 Oven temperature was too high- mixture not set on top before cake finished rising
2.2 Too much mixture was used for the size of tin
2.3 The cake was cooked too near the top of the oven.
3 Has a heavy texture
3.1 The mixture was too wet
3.2 Not enough chemical raising agent or air was added
3.3 The oven temperature was too low

4 Has a hard sugary crust
4.1 Too much sugar was used
