I have a cake to make by wednesday for a friend. the child turns 6 they are having a lot of people over I am making a 12x12 cake marbles not real sure on how long to bake it for it is the largest cake i have ever done.

There will also be a monster truck cake and that wouldn't give them enough cake.

Baking time will vary depending of the depth of the batter. Best thing is to lower temp to between 300-325 degrees, wrap the cake pan with damp towels and possibly use a heating core [ or rose nails ] to disperse the heat evenly. Check with toothpick in center to see if it is completly baked...don't wait till it pulls from the sides of the pan...that can lead to overbaked-dry cakes!

I do 12X12 often. I don't use the bake strips but I do use an inverted flower nail. Fill the pan at least 2/3 full and bake at 325 for approx 40 minutes or until a tester is clean. Whatever method you use to grease your pan needs to also be done to the nail.
