How do I convert a receipe that is for 1 8" cake pan into 1 for a 12" cake pan? What is the proper way to add eggs, oil, flour, etc.? For example, I want to make a cake that feeds 100 people. How do I do that? Please help me! Thanks!
do you already hve a recipe that you are using?
when I'm baking in a 10 inch I just double the batch for everything then fill the pan with one whole batch and maybe half of the other(just eyeball the batter level)
seems like you may be baking from scratch, i'm not but my mom does dry ingredients 1st
new to caking myself but HTH
I would cut the recipe in half and bake in the 12" pan, then I would know how much does it fills it with.
You can measure, this half recipe, to see how many cups of batter is making.
If you google "wilton serving chart" it tells you how many cups of batter you need : 7 1/2 cups and the 12" cake will serve 56.
