I can’t figure out how to use the Rose factor. And I’m making either the All Occassion Yellow cake or the Sour Cream Cake (open to suggestions) and the TCB calls for two 9” x 1 1/2” for the ACY. On the joysofbaking site it says the pans call for the same amount of batter,

9 x 1 1/2 inches 6 cups 23 x 4 cm 1.4 liters

vs.
8 x 2 inches 6 cups 20 x 5 cm 1.4 liters

Do I need to adjust any of the baking soda or powder. Its my 1st order and I want to start out on the right foot. BUt I can’t figure out the chart on 490. 

does the rose factor apply to all recipes? 

THanks.

Thank you for the replies. I didn’t see the posts so I ripped the bandaid and went for it. its exactly how you stated, yes the batter was short, the 8” x 2” pans held a little less than 1/2 the batter. I did use bake strips and the cakes baked evenly and just barely rose to the 2inch height.

The reason why I posted was b/c I too had originally calculated 5 + tsp baking powder but the All Occasion recipe in front called for much less. So I baked the cake according to the exact ingredients in the All Occasion in the front. I figured a half inch how bad could it go?

Its my new favorite butter cake, although I only tasted the top once I torted the cake but it was devine.

I made the yellow baby grands from RCB too and the taste was more mellow and the cake was denser and had a different texture, great but for true butter taste its all occasion all the way for me.

I think I get how to use the Rose factor now. Here is the picture from my 1st order last night its from my phone. Its filled w/ a chocolate sour cream filling, french vanilla butter cream, and fondant covered w/ a chocolate monarch. Just curious what someone would pay for it becuase I think I really undercharged.

I wish, The cake Bible have a new edition.  I do not like the idea to use the Rose’s factor.
It seems to be so confused, for whom is not good at all in math - like me! confused
