hello, I have been decorating cakes for about six months now and I have tried two chocolate cake recipies. One recipie results in a cake that is too soft and crumbly therefore hard to decorate. The other is too hard and dry and not pleasent to eat. I would be extremely greatfull if I could have recipies of cakes that would be ideal to decorate and nice to eat. Also how to adjust them to a 10'', a 12'' and a 7'' tins[img][/img]

Hi and welcome to CC, rohima. )

Decoding CC acronyms:

The white almond sour cream (WASC) cake recipe combines the reliability of a mix with a more homemade taste.

Here's the expanded flavors verson of the recipe:

Using DH white cake mixes the full recipe yields a tad over 14 cups of batter so it's perfect for larger or multiple cake pans.

Here's another chocolate version by wgoat5:

Link to all four Wilton cake preparation and sevings guides:
Gives batter requirements by pan size as well as recommended baking temps. and time & more. Although some CC members bake all their cakes at 325F and just increase the time.)

Batter requirements for Fat Daddios pans:
(For odd size pans.)

Popular scratch recipes:

Most scratch recipes can be doubled without problems but after that the amount of leavener should be adjusted down.

However, since your largest pan is 10", you should be fine.
