Im making a chocolate cake (for 17 people)
and the recipe says it can fill (http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2005/0743246616_3.html) the magnolia cupcake one!
i have two pans by wilton
the 10x2 inch Decorator Round Pan
10 x 2 inch Decorator Square Pan
My mother would prefer me to use the square one, by i havent before and i dont want it to be a 'low' cake we want it to be a 'high' cake so do i make the mixture 1 1/2 times the amount for the square pan?
which pan would you recommend in general to use
can i fit the whole batter into the one 10x2 inche ROUnd pan? or will i have to bake two cakes
please help me urgently
thank you soooo much!
i'm bumping this for you.
i'm not very good at this, but i normally fill in my pans about half, if it helps you to determine the batter you prepared will suit which pan..
Measure out how many cups of water it takes to fill your pan to the desired level (I prefer 2/3 full) - this will match the number of cups of batter you will need
that recipe does 24 cupcakes which would normally fill (2) 8x2 inch pans. In the articles section there is a page that lists how many servings different pans are and how many cups of batter a pan will take. If you are only using 1 10x2 pan you'll have enough batter, if you wan to do 2 10x2 cakes to stack then you'll be short a bit; you could still put into 2 pans and have shorter layers.
hope this helps you.
If your recipe makes 24 cupcakes then you will need 1 1/2 batches to fill a 10x2 *square* pan; OR one batch for a 10x2" round.
Thanks sooo much
im going to go ahead with the round one
will post pics up! thanks
