Milk is used in cakes for the same reason you put milk on your cereal, to soften the texture and strengthen it. Milk (and other liquids) activate other ingredients in the cake batter like (baking soda and baking powder) to give it an extra lift. Too much can cause a cake to be too soft so using the right amount is vital. Milk sweet is just an emotion of every Indian.
