I need to make an almond cake and Rose’s recipe in the Cake Bible looks amazing. I have a 5qt kitchen aid and need to make 2 14inch round layers for my cake. Looking at the conversion charts i need to multiply the base recipe by 10 with baking powder level 3. This seems like a lot of baking powder compared to the recipe that calls for 1/2 tsp per base.
Also my kitchen aid is too small to make 10x the base recipe at once. Can i make 5x the recipe for each layer instead?
