I have 2 12 x 16 pans and want to make a 16 x 24 cake. How difficult is it to line up the cakes without seeing any kind of seam? Or am I better off just getting a 16 x 24 pan? Being a novice hobby baker I appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.
I remember another conversation here about someone's large pan not fitting into the oven. There were lots of suggestions about making 4 8" squares and putting them together. If I could remember the posting title I would post it here for you.
This is a good question. I think all you have to do is butt them together. I'm thinking along the lines of the cupcakes that are frosted to look like cakes, all in one big surface.
Let's hope someone who has done this chimes in soon. I'm curious too.
I've never had any problems getting them to line up.
Thank you, Linda and Cheatize, for responding. Found I don't have a choice. Didn't realize my oven was smaller than 24" - should have measured before asking - sorry. Sometimes I just get so caught up in this site.... Thanks, again!
I have "glued" cakes together - some were planned that way and one was the Family Bible cake in my photos that the top layer split into about 6 pieces. The trick to getting a nice clean stick w/out seams is to put a thin layer of BC in between the cakes and "glue" them together. Then put a very thin layer of BC over the seam (so thin that it is almost transparent - but the BC fills in the crack on top) and let it dry completely before you fill or crumb coat. Good luck!
