Hi Cakers!! icon_biggrin.gif

I have a cake I am doing next week that calls for a 12" round. This will be the first time I have ever done a cake that large. I am a little nervous. A poster in a different thread stated that it will take 8 cups of batter to fill this pan.

Can someone who bakes with this size regularly give me a estimated time about how long it takes for one 12" round cake to bake?

I have Magic Line cake pans. It will be the "Durable" cake recipe, Sharon Zambito uses. It is a Yellow cake.

Any tips are appreciated!

Truly, don't try to bake by time. "Bake until done."

And yes it takes 8-8.5 cups of batter for a 12" round.

You'll do fine. Just test it like it is any other size. I only sweat on the 20" ones now! icon_wink.gif

Make sure you use a heating core!

I doubt that you can get an accurate time as all ovens are different. I would insert 2 metal flower nails in upside down and bake at 325 until done. Be sure to post a picture of it when you get it done.
