I have had an order for a 14 inch round rich fruit (wedding) cake but i have only got the recipe for an 11 inch cake...
Does anyone know how to upscale quantities/ recipes or have a recipe for a 14inch round rich fruit cake please?
i am cutting it very fine indeed - it needs to be ready in 6 weeks aswell (only just got order)
Have your cake
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!
super cool formula, love it and will definately have to use that one for sure!!!
