I have been making cakes for years now and very seldom does it turn out that I have just the right amount of batter for the different size cake pans I am using each week. I was told by a fellow baker that she never has any leftover batter.  I don't know how that is possible.  When baking from scratch or from a mix, each one makes a certain amount of batter so I don't know how you would never have leftover batter.   Am I missing something?  Is this possible?

i can't speak for her but i bake my leftover batter in anything from a 2", 3" 4" pan on up plus i have multiples of all -- i have mini loaf pans -- any number of things including good old fashioned cupcake pans to bake off the extra batter then you gotta give them away or deal with the cellulite -- but i mean you can use the little mini pie pans -- just whatever you can find to bake that amount off in -- so yes i agree with you i rarely ever have the exact amount but no i don't have/keep leftover batter either --

but then again you can make partial recipes too -- however many eggs in there -- i divide by that amount to make a smaller portion of batter -- so for 4 eggs in a recipe i divide that one by 4 to make a smaller portion -- 3 eggs divide by three of course -- then y'know obviously decide how many portions of that i need -- stuff like that too

best baking to yah
