Hi all!! I'm doing my first tiered cake and was wondering if anyone had a good recipe for a large vanilla sponge. I need quantities for 6" - 12" cakes. It's all still a bit new to me doing things on the larger scale !! So any help would be greatly appreciated !! icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif xxx

I'm not an expert baker, so would appreciate any opposing opinions on this as it might be different for sponge cake recipes. But I believe it's the procedure you change, not your recipe. People do all sorts of things when making a bigger cake. For example those strips you can buy to wrap around the pan (or old towels, dampened). Many people use a heating core, or greased flower nails. Lowering the oven temperature, putting foil over the top.... lots of little things people do to ensure it's cooked in the middle.
