Hi everyone ,
I was wondering if anyone uses the grams method to mesure out your ingrediants. If so, can you tell me how many grams it takes of Cake mix to make a 11"x15" cake . I would need to make two of them .
I have some bulk Cake mix here ...but the instructions tell me to mix 350grams to make 2 8" rounds . But how do I convert this to make the 11"x15" .
I weigh both in grams and ounces, and measure both in deciliters and cups, but I don't use cake mix, sorry.
According to Wilton's guide for 2" deep party cakes an 8" round takes 3.5 cups of batter for a one layer cake and a 11" X 15" takes 11.
So if my math is correct and Wilton's #'s are accurate:
For the 2 round 8" cakes you would need 7 cups so divide 11/7 and multiply that by 350g and it should give you the amount you need for the sheet cake.
11/7 approx 1.57
(1.57 * 350 = 550g)
The other thing you could do is measure water into both the round and sheet pan to figure out how much batter you need and then calculate the same way.
I hope that helps and I haven't confused you too much. It's way past my bedtime
