Is it important to preheat an oven when baking?

Preheating Your Oven

When your baking recipe calls for a specific temperature, say 350 degrees pre-heat your oven to 375 because when you open the door to put the cake in you will lose some heat. As soon as you put the cake in the oven reduce the temperature to 350. It's important to preheat the oven because rising can be compromised if the oven is not at the proper temperature.
