OK, so I had to use an 8in pan. (I do not usually use one that small) Well, the kitchen smells like smoke because the batter spilled over! Can I save it? If I just let it keep baking will it get done and be OK?? PleaSE HELP! OR do I chock it up to a loss and start over? Thanks in advance!

Uh oh. Chances are if your kitchen is smokey, your oven is smokey. Therefore the delicate cake batter you have in there is absorbing smoke. Blech.

I'm sorry that happened to you!

I've had that happen icon_mad.gif I usually just pull the pans out and scoop up as much of the mess that I can with a metal pancake turner or something like that. Then continue baking - the cakes aren't out of the oven long enough to cause much loss in heat. You can do a complete oven clean when you're done.
