OK so I was wondering.... I'm baking a 6 in (maybe smaller) smash cake and I'm using a box cake mix. I want to make it 2 layers but only have 1 pan.

My first question is will the cake batter be ok to sit while the first layer is baking?

And just for future reference... can you refrigerate left over cake batter?

THANX

yes and yes.........I've refrigerated batter for one day and it was fine.....more than that you start to lose some of the baking umf that it has and it won't rise as much.

Yes and yes. I've never had a problem with it rising. I even recently did an experiment where I put a 6" square pan of batter in the freezer, then baked it pretty much straight from the freezer and it baked up fine. (I started to thaw it out, but after about 20 minutes, I got impatient, said "screw it" and threw it in the oven. Came out a-ok-fine!)

just wanted to add that I just bought a t.v. dinner the other night w/ "chocolate cake" in it......and it was just frozen batter.......who knew?? Now I just think about all the cake batter I've thrown out lol. Would be nice to see if you could freeze batter in the pan and then plop it out and put it in a zip bag, then when you're ready to bake, grease your pan and pop it back in and bake. I'll have to do a test next time I make some cake batter.
