I need to make a 3D minion cake, and I don't want to make a lot of cakes to give the minion height. There won't be a lot of people to eat it so I don't want to waste it. Can somebody please give me ANY recipe that will make more than the standard amount of cake batter? so that i can bake it in small pans twice to have a good height for the minion?
hope you understand the question. I want a cake recipe that will make a large amount of batter. Thank you
How many people?
If you need it small, I would bake in several 4" or 6" pans and round the top one or two for the head. Or a pyrex or stainless bowl for the top of the head.
You can double (or 1 and a half) many recipes with success. Google "doubling baking recipes" for some tips about rules of the science of it all.
Hope that helps a little...
thank you so much, it does :)
I used a basic sponge recipe and used three slightly different sized fruit cans for the minions in my avatar. I still view them as work in progress because I hadn't baked anything for 15 years and then realised a week before my daughter and niece's birthday that they both loved Minions! I will definitely do these again and work on improving them. The cakes got a great reception by everyone including the restaurant where we took them.
