I just bought a fat daddio 7 x 3 round cake pan. Reason being, I am making my daughters birthday cake and I wanted a smaller cake. Here are my questions…
1) how do I know what recipe will fit in this pan to make one big cake (ideally I’d like to fill the pan as much as possible so the cake can be cut in half and layered, opposed to making two cakes and stacking.)
2) I know the butter cakes in tcb have the chart in the back for other pans, but I am not a fan of the butter cakes. I liked the fudge cake but I’m not sure how this would work. Any opinions on what cake to make? Or other cake recipes? I’m looking for choc cake as I am covering with vanilla buttercream and fondant.
Btw, even though its against all opinions I am planning on making and decorating the cake and freezing it. I figure it’s worth w try since this Is just a family cake and worst case scenario I go to wegmans and get my daughter a store bought cake instead. She’s three I’m sure she wouldn’t remember lol!
