Hi there!
I hope you can help me icon_smile.gif

I need to bake a 3 layer cake, but I only have one 8 inch pan here (I'm in my sister's house).

What would be the best way to do it? Should I make all the batter at once, and let it wait till I bake every layer?

Will it be OK if I let the batter wait until I can reuse the pan?

Or should I halve the batter and do the mix per every layer?

Hope I made some sense, my English doesn't help a lot when trying to explain myself icon_smile.gif

thanks in advance thumbs_up.gif

Usually the batter can wait okay. You're probably using more than one mix - right? Save the remainder from the first mix, add it to the second mix. Make some cupcakes with the extra you'll probably have after mix 2.

Back when I baked at home, I'd fill all the pans for the 3 or 4 tier cake and they'd be lined up on the counter, waiting their turn for the oven.

everything worked out fine.
