    Depends on how much you add.

    Too much of either will leave a nasty taste in your mouth after taking a bite of cake.

    Most people use a tablespoon of vinegar in sweet recipes to cut down on the "sugar taste".
    I personally, use a bit of vinegar in some sweet recipes to cut down on the sugary taste. I even use vinegar in my buttercream frosting to help cut that tooth hurting sweet you get from it.

    Vinegar reacts with bicarbonate of soda to produce carbon dioxide. It can be used to help baked goods rise, but the reaction doesn't last forever so once both are added to the batter the cake should be put in the oven quickly!
