Okay, so I'm making a quinceanera cake for friday. I'm baking today and I made all my BC yesterday.

So I mixed about half of the cake mix with each recipe missing a cup of water!!! icon_cry.gif
When I realized I misread the recipe I added the extra cup I needed to the next batch I was making. My question is. . . . Does that extra cup of water make a noticable difference??? Are my cakes doomed??? I'm just really stressing over this...Any help would be appreciated.

What does the cake look and smell like? Does it seem like it's ok??

I wish I could help. I don't know if it will matter. If they are a little dry, you could try using a simple syrup. Hopefully, someone else can help you.

Well I finished baking...finally!

And the first cakes I did seemed to be a tad bit darker. But they're not burned or anything so I think it'll be okay.

We'll just have to see what they taste like..

Those layers missing water will be a bit dense....similar to pound cake I think. That or they will have more of a cookie texture icon_sad.gif
Did you need to level them at all? Taste the cut-off? That's the best thing I think.

Tasting the torted part is a good idea Kakeladi!

Good luck Sweetpea!
