I’m going to attempt the GMWC this weekend. Actually a smaller 6in. version and had a fcouple questions.
1. I remember someone (Matthew???) posting that the breakdown of the wedding cake recipe for 6 in. and 9 in. cake is 30%/70%. So I can use the first batter recipe X 0.3 to make the batter for a double layer 6 in. cake. Is that correct? Just want to make sure my proportion is correct.
2. For the GM syrup, can I use Seville oranges to get the juice or will that be too tart? I still have the Seville oranges to use and was wondering if I could use them to make this cake. If all Seville oranges is not good, maybe 1/2 Sevile, 1/2 Navel?
Thank you for your input.
