How will using 9 x 2” pans affect the result of White Velvet Butter Cake, which calls for 9 x 1.5”?

Hi There,

Am just about to bake this cake but am afraid now that I realise my pans are 9 x 2” deep, and Rose calls for 1 1/2”. Do I have to run to the Cake Supply store?

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for your quick response! I have on older book that doesn’t show that :( Looks like I need to get the most recent edition!

I really don’t need the layers to be deeper as I am baking 3, should i just go for it with recipe as written or adjust for deeper layers & best result?

Thank you so much!

Hi Carolita,

THANK you so much! OH mi gosh, I am always so amazed at those who have the patience and brain for these calculations! I was just telling Patrincia that I usually stay clear of that page/section in the book because I get so overwhelmed with it all, lol! I did the 1st 2 layers without altering the recipe and was very pleased that they came out pretty perfect (so it appears, prior to the cut and taste test!) And the result was what Rose predicted, a smidge higher than 1 1/8”, which was my primary concern in using the 1/2’ deeper-than-called-for pan.

You are all so wonderful. I read the forums voraciously but rarely post. Am delighted with all the helpful and supportive responses, thank you!

Cheers!

Stephanie
