I'm so tired and baked a cake 1/2 white and chocolate. The chocolate side is fine but I messed up on the white side. Instead of 4 Tbsp. of oil i put 1 cup. the cake taste fine but is really really moist on the white side. Should I just re-bake this?
I have to leave for my graduation shortly and don't want to be up all night baking to deliver this at 10:00. However, I don't want a customer not being pleased either.

See how you feel when you get home. I would probably rebake - but that's the perfectionist in me.

Most likely I would use would just depend on how it looks and tastes to me.

I would rebake just in case. A cup of oil sounds like a lot. It would probably be fine, but just in case.

Thanks for the replies. I tasted the scraps of the cake once it had time to cool and sit. Like I said earlier the chocolate side was fine but once it has time to set the white side tasted like flour with being really moist. I think I just really screwed up in my measurements for the white cake. Chalk it up to being tired and distracted with 2 kids crying at my feet and trying to get ready for graduation. UGGG. I ended up re-baking and this time it turned out right. whew! Now to go decorated it.

Thanks again.
