Hello
I was wondering if someone can help me. im looking for a sponge recipe for a 12x3 hex cake tin.
Im attempting a castle cake for my daughters bday. It requires 3 layers of hexagonal sponge and two layers of round sponge on top of the hex base. The hex layers are sandwiched sponge, butter cream, sponge jam, sponge then its all covered in butter cream to then be covered in fondant. then the rounds are sandwiched together and buttercreamed then fondanted then placed on top of the hexagonal base.
This is the cake im attempting.......

Any good sturdy cake recipe should work fine for this application. When I use my hexagonal pans I do not use any different recipe than I do for round cakes. As in any stacking, the cake recipe is not as important as the support system applied. Good luck to you!
