I need to make 2 ten inch cakes… im really horrid at math so i figured id double check my calculation with someone here ! =) so according to my understanding. To make a 2 layer 10 inch cake i need to multiply the base recipe by 5 and as per the baking powder measurements, thats one and half tsp into 5 = 7.5 tsps of baking powder… RIGHT?! Someone pls chime in and help me out ! Need to start baking tomorrow and im so worried! Much thanks in advance! =)

In cases like this, I always double the recipe. That would be the quickest way to do it. It’s not brain surgery. If the recipe works for one cake, then it should work for two. If I’m baking for 500 people then I will need a rocket scientist to figure it for me. Good luck. I hope it works.

@chocoholic, you’ve got it right!  Multiply the base recipe by a Rose Factor of 5, and multiply the baking powder level 2 of 1.5 tsp by 5 to get 7.5 tsp, which is the same as 2 Tbs plus 1.5 tsp

Good luck, and hope you’ll post a picture smile
