Hello, I am looking for a 9in double layer chocolate cake recipe. I dont need frosting just the basic double layer chocolate cake. I will be attempting to cover it with fondant so I guess it has to be a recipe that will yield a strong cake. Its my 1st time so I have a question. I want to make a 2 tier cake, bottom 9in double layer and top 6in double layer. Will I need different measurements of ingredients for the 6in tier or can I just make a 9in batch and only fill the 6in pans with the amount needed?
Please help, I have searched and searched and have not been able to come up with a recipe or answer.
Hi and Welcome to CC, vampirella.
Everything you need to know to make, decorate and assemble tiered/stacked/layer cakes:
Above super thread has popular CC recipes for crusting American buttercreams, several types of fondant and doctored cake mix (WASC and other flavor variations) and so much more.
The more would be cake making/baking help, hints & tips as well as complete and accurate directions for using the most common cake support systems. There's also info on several methods of smoothing icing and so much more.
It's a long read, so I'd suggest a beverage and a comfy place to sit.
This is my favorite chocolate cake recipe....I sell tons of these.
Yes, you can use the same recipe for 6" layers too. Just fill the pans about 2/3 full and maybe use the rest of the batter for cupcakes.
This is my favorite chocolate cake ever - I never try making another recipe. The oil and milk make it very moist.
