  3. In an electric mixer, mix the butter with the sugar for about 5 minutes until it forms a thick cream.

EXTRA TIP: for your cake to be very red on around the corners, I have a secret! Wrap the outside sides of the pan with aluminum foil before placing the dough in the oven. This will help to avoid excessive heat that darkens the side of the cake. 😉
Another thing put the shape inside another larger shape and put a little water to bake in the water bath style. This also helps to make the cake redder.
