I want to be able to try different recipes without having to make a 10" cake for each flavor. I have 4 maybe 5 adults that I use as my test subjects and they cant eat too many 10" cakes. icon_biggrin.gif

My thoughts are maybe start with lets say a white cake recipe but divide in 1/4 and have each quarter with a different flavor or recipe. Can this be done? Has anyone done it?

I would like to make cupcakes instead of a whole cake so I can also try
different frosting recipes.

it depends on the recipies. if its just a case of adding stuff, like lemon zest, then making one plain batch and dividing it will work.
if its very different recipies, then you will need to make smaller batches - like half, or quarter what the recipie needs, and make in smaller pans. i have 4inch cake pans, which im using to try out new decorations, and il be doing the same with new recipies.
