Questions:

Hi I just wanted to ask you kept 4 eggs is it fine if you only put 2 eggs for 1 piece of a cake

Answer:

If you want to use only 2 eggs, you'll have to use only half the ingredients, and get a smaller cake. Eggs are very important in a cake batter, and use only half of them won't work properly. Sorry!
