when to use baking powder vs baking soda?

m00ncakes | Nov 24, 2002 10:11 PM

when should i use one over the other? in some quick bread/muffin/cake recipes i've used, both are needed in differing quantities. i've experimented with using more of one vs the other, but haven't figure out what the difference is. does one have a better rise? more acidity? does the usage depend on the other ingredients?

just curious...
