Hello. I would like to start practicing baking and decorating cakes. Most of the recipes call for one or two 9x2 inch round pans, but I live alone and I can't eat cakes all day long. So I decided to buy two 6-inch pans and halve all the recipes. I think it will work generally, but I'm not sure about the height of the pans: 2" or 3"?
9x2 = 127 square inches
6x2 = 56 square inches - 44% of 9x2
Well, it's a bit less than 50% and I'm thinking about batter overflowing. I need advice.
I would leave the recipe as is a buy a third 6 inch, fill all three evenly and bake. Wrap the other 2 very well and freeze them, and when you want to practice you have them ready, or you can make cupcakes with the remaining batter. I use 2 inch pans. hope this helps
I much prefer 2" tall pans. I could never get good results with 3" deep ans.
