I have a cake decorating book that has a few recipes that have a chart down the bottom that tell me the amounts I need of each ingreident listed for each specific tin size from 5" to 12" round and square which i think is fantastic!

I was just wondering does anyone out there know of an internet site or other recipe books out there that have the same thing but with more recipes?

Hi Elise, I have that book and agree it is fantastic!

I have been on the look out for something similar but so far haven't found it - I keep meaning to set up a spreadsheet that I can enter in the formulas and convert any new recipes I find but as yet it's still on my to do list icon_smile.gif

Hope someone else can help, I'd love to know if there is something out there!

Mines called 'the essential guide to cake decorating' and has some fondant flowers on the front, is that the one you have too?

OK, just had a look on google books and it looks like they are basically the same book, recipes all seem to be the same at least!

HEY! look what i found

which links to:

and if you go to this index and go through and find the cakes as you scroll down in the recipes of most of them there should be a link in blue where you can get the tin size varations for those too!

I have lots of books that list recipe ingredients by pan size. I agree it would be nice to have a listing on line somewhere. let me know if you find oneicon_smile.gif
