I really want to bake only a 6” (to start) of one of Rose’s wedding cakes in RHC. The recipe given combines 6” and 9” together.  Can anyone provide a simple formula or method for me to apply to figure out how much of each ingredient for two 6” layers?  I really shun away from math and still am perplexed by the methods given in TCB for scaling.

thank you

The proportions are 70/30.  I think Rose just posted something about this recently.

As far as making the two 6 inch layers, you would multiply the weights by .3, or you could probably get away with making a third of the recipe, having a little extra batter leftover.

Here’s the thread - it’s in Rose’s blog - her exchange with liztree: http://www.realbakingwithrose.com/2008/05/cake_questions_three.html
