Hi I am attempting to make my first ever carrot Cake and found a recipe on this site. However it is for an 8 Inch cake and I need to make a 14 Inch
cake. Can you advise how I go about achieving this without ruining the recipe and having a good depth as an end result.

Any suggestions welcomed.

Thanks in advance

Double your recipe....google to check if you can find a chart online that tells you howmany cups of batter you need to fill a 14 inch cake tin. I have doubled a 7" recipe and baked it in a 11" tin and it turned out just fine.

HTH.

yep, i think as long as you keep the proportions right, you'll be fine

My Wilton chart says one 8 inch cake needs 3 1/2 cups batter, a 14 inch needs 10 cups. So it depends on how much the recipe actually makes. Denette
