When a recipe specifically calls for a bundt pan, is it because the cakes are heavy?

I'm looking at the Cake Mix Doctor's German Chocolate Cake. Think I can use layer pans?

Has anyone had good/bad experience switching out to layer pans?

Who the heck wants to make a bundt? Just kiddin! I like decorating the layers too much to go with a glazed bundt! icon_biggrin.gif

I can't remember ever doing it but I think it will be fine. I'd keep the cake small......not more than a 10" round. Better chance of it baking all the way thru.

I suggest using a flower nail in the pan to help distribute the heat - very much like the hole in a bundt pan does

I made the blueberry muffin cake that came from the cake mix doctor in 2 8in. rounds and that recipe calls for a tube pan. It came out wonderful. I hope this will help you. Jaime

I've done it & had no problems. Of course the time will be different
