Please help ASAP. I need to know how much buttercream frosting I need to have to do basketweave on the sides of a double layer of a 9" long oval cake. The teacher told us to bring a double recipe (6 cups), but that was for the standard Course II oval pans which are more like 6" long. I have 9" long oval pans which she has approved me to use, but not sure how much frosting I will need. Class is this Monday evening. If I bring just the double recipe will I likely run out?
How much do you use for basketweave on two 8" rounds and/or two 9" rounds, as well (ie. double layer). I just am curious about that for future reference.
when I have done the basketweave I have just used Wiltons BC recipe and it worked great and I made a double batch, had leftovers but with an oval I think I would do a triple batch. I do think that would be more then enough, if you have leftovers you have practice icing.
You can also save it for your next cake.
Check out my Easter bonnet cake. This cake including the rim took less than 2 of the regular sized icing bags full of icing to do. The actual cake was the oval from the Wilton class. Hope this helps.
