I'm new to this! How many cakes can I safely bake in the oven at once? icon_confused.gif

You can probably only fit 2 pans at a time and I'd only do sizes that are close so you don't have too much temperature fluctuation.

Hope this helps & Good Luck!

I do two 12" and two 10" at once

Or two 6" and two 8"....

I like to keep them together in size as close as possible.

Thank you very much! Since I have only done a couple of simple cakes I will probably be bothering all of you some more! I hope you don't mind! My niece is getting married on Saturday (small backyard wedding/reception) and she did not order a wedding cake - she asked me if I could try and bake one for her. I said of course and now I'm crossing my fingers. I'm pretty confident that I can accomplish it (I hope), but I'm still a little nervous! If it turns out, I'll post a picture - if not, I'll slink away with my tail between my legs - lol!

In a home oven, I'd put the larger pans in the back and small ones in the front, since the small ones will be done first and I can easily pull them out.

Just be sure you have some space between them so the heat can circulate.

Other than that, it's just like a Tetris puzzle! icon_biggrin.gif
