razilia,
is this 18 cm x 2*cm*? Normal would be 18x5cm (2inch).

If your recipe is for 18 cm tin, resulting in 5 cm high cake:
make no adjustments, in 20 cm tin it will be ca. 4 cm high
for 30 cm pan, best you can do is 2 1/2 x your recipe - resulting in 4.5 cm high cake

These are not exact number, but what I wanted to say: going from 18 to 20 cm - take the same recipe, you will get slightly lower cake. Going from 18 to 30 cm - make two and a half of your recipe, the cake will be again slightly lower.

Should your recipe be really for 18cm x 2cm - you need to double the numbers to get what I consider the normal height.

30/18=new multiplier.

I have to disagree. You forgot - this is not length but volume conversion. ( 30/18 )x( 30/18 )=new multiplier - near enough for round as well as square pans. Exactly what I wanted to avoid (the whole math behind it) ...

Bah! forget the math. Your pan should be about 1/2 to 2/3s full. Fill the pan with water to either of these levels and that's roughly the volume of cake batter you will need.

Figure out how much batter one batch of your recipe will make and go from there.

If you take whatever the answer is to 30/18 then multiply that to your "18" ingredient list. Your 18 now became a 30 recipe.
