have been asked to make a Carrot Wedding Cake. Very comfortable making Carrot Cake, the request is for a very tall version but not layered, if I can find the right tin surely it will work out fine?? Any hints/tips, thank you in advance
I would properly make two cakes and stack them... as I am not sure how a deep tin would cook compared to a shallow one?
I agree with Babbo. You need to make more than one cake. Make as many as you need and stack to the correct height.
How tall is a tall version? I believe a 3 inch pan is the tallest they come. If you try to get any taller you'll have trouble with it baking all the way through. What is the reasoning for such a tall cake? Maybe you need to explain the technical part of baking to them? Some requests just can't be met...
Thank you all, very helpful. 4" is the deepest pan I have, so that will probably do 2 layers high.
Wish me luck
