Hi Haveyourcake2706,

There is a formula you can use to figure this out, it is called the Formula Conversion Factor (FCF). I have learned this from a book produced by The Culinary Institute of America.

Desired Yield (14")
________________ = Formula Conversion Factor (FCF 1.273)
Original Yield (11")

After finding the FCF, you multiply ALL INGREDIENTS by this number.

Best of Luck!
