In some cake or cupcake receipes you mention "....to avoid over-mixing..". What will happen to a cake/cupcake when you over-mix (how does it affect the cake/cupcake)?

I have made this recipe from How To Be A Domestic Goddess (p322) on several occasions and always love the outcome. I have, however, never been able to get away with using the 600g of flour that the recipe calls for. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, but I invariably require substantially more flour. Please help. Thanks

Should eggs be refrigerated? I used to and then stopped, as I heard they shouldn't be. Yesterday I was buying eggs at a UK supermarket and their advice was to put them in the fridge. Can you perhaps clarify for me and probably 100s of others who have the egg dilema? Many thanks
