baking powder is better madz, but depends what you're making. some recipes need both.(loaves, muffins etc). it affects the rising of the end product
What are you making! Might give me more idea to help you.

badz(or)madz, if you have a problem re using baking soda in your baking here's a couple of hints that you may find useful so that there is no unpleasant baking soda in the finished product.

Be sure to use level measuring spoon measurements of baking soda unless the recipe states otherwise.

Sieve or otherwise ensure that there are no lumps in the baking soda when it is added to the other ingredients - sometimes the mixing and baking can leave any baking soda lumps whole.

Hope that helps.:-))

the soda is more for the colour the powder is more for the rising.

the soda enhances colour of cocoa powder and activated by liquids. Baking powder is activated by heat. To minimise the b.soda's taste, you will notice recipes calling for the use of acids to balance it out eg yoghurt, honey, buttermilk, cream fraiche, etc.

badz(or)madz, creme fraiche is a cultured cream product which can be found in the supermarket chillers alongside other products such as cream cheese, sour cream, etc.Here's some info' from at:-
