Hello everybody,
Ok..I'm in a major fix. My cake batter is in a pans and I just noticed that my oven is not heating!!!! icon_cry.gif
What should I do??? Can I keep the batter in the fridge or do I have to throw the whole thing icon_cry.gif

Please advice. I can only call the electrician in the morning...so the batter has to be in the fridge over night.
Its a WASC recipe.

Thanks in advance.

You can freeze the batter! Sorry about your oven!

I think you're supposed to let it thaw first. I'm pretty sure icon_smile.gif

I did, when I froze it, But someone (and my mind just went blank) said they just scoop it out frozen and make cupcakes with it.

I remember Indydebi saying she had some batter left over so she threw it in the pan...pan in freezer..then the whole thing got popped into the oven days later and it all baked up fine. Good luck..sorry about your oven! icon_cry.gif

Just over night you can't put in the refrigerator? I wouldnt think it would hurt it? Anyone know?

Yes you can put it in the fridge. I do it ALL the time. No problem.

I would just put it in the fridge if it's just overnight. I have done that many times as well.

I have never done this, it is good to know! But from the fridge do you let i warm up a bit towards room temp. Thank you for asking this one. I think its great to know.

Sometimes I let it warm up, sometimes not. If not, then it needs to bake a coupe of minutes longer.

Cake really isn't rocket science.
