I tried this white cake recipe and it worked great for cupcakes, but the sheet cake isn't rising. I thought maybe my baking powder was a little old so I bought more, same problem. I did read a thread about having too much liquid and I think that may be the problem. Here is the recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/COOKS-ILLUSTRATED-WHITE-LAYER-CAKE-50017374


Please help!!

The same thing has happened to me with a chocolate recipe. Now I use one for cupcakes and one for cake. My cupcake recipe is VERY thin. Almost like water.
