I have a recipe that says to pour my prepared batter into two 9" round cake pans...if I have a really deep 9" cake pan can I just pour it all in that and then cut it into two layers after. Will it still bake alright?
A hot cake plus cold frosting means cake death: soggy and ugly. Meg Ray, founder and owner of San Francisco’s Miette patisserie and confiserie, explains what you’re doing wrong when you’re frosting a cake. Plus, more importantly, what you should be doing right: using good tools, keeping the components at the right temperature, giving it a crumb layer, and more. Here's CHOW's basic yellow cake recipe to try out your new frosting skills on.
