My friend asked me to make her sons b-day cake. The catch is he wants a marble cake. My question is can I halve my choc. & vanilla cake recipes so that I don't have a bunch of left over cake batter? Its just a small 9 in cake for the family so I don't need two full batches of each cake batter. I use the "perfectly chocolate" cake recipe from Hershey and the Easy yellow cake recipe from the CC recipes.

I am assuming it will be okay because the ingredient ratios will still be the same but I know baking is a science and don't want to end up with a mess on my hands icon_cry.gif

I don't know the answer but the other day someone posted that they freeze leftover batter ( I did the same after reading). She even showed pictures. You can also bake the extra into cupcakes or smaller cake and save for tastings or a quick needed cake. HTH

Thank you so much for your help. I never would of thought to freeze the batter!! I think I am going to try to halve it this time.

I just bake for family & friends so I don't know when the next cake will be.
Thanks again!!
