cake rising and falling

what causes a cake to rise and fall?

i'm still trying to make banh bo nuong (vietnamese pandan cake). i tried a different recipe today and while amusing, it kept rising and falling many times during baking. i know this isn't a western cake, but i wonder if i knew why cakes rise and fall, maybe i can apply it.

thankies!
