Baking powder is a raising agent that is commonly used in cake making. The powder is activated when liquid is added, producing carbon dioxide and forming bubbles that cause the mixture to expand. For this reason, it is important to get your cake mixture into the oven quickly once the "wet" ingredients have been added to the "dry" ingredients.
