tips for 11x15 cake pans - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 
Wow, thanks for all the advice!! I didn't have a chance to buy the flower nails, so I just took my chances, using the bake strips on the outside, and parchment on the bottom. It did rise a little in the center, but I didn't bother to trim it, since it wasn't too bad. Now that it is decorated you can barely tell. I do wish I had another box, each Betty Crocker only made 4 cups, and it's only 2 inches high. It baked in 30 min. at 325. Would 3 boxes extend the baking time that much, to over an hour???

Still, I am glad to have that pan, and I can't wait to use it for my penguin in August, but then I will definitely make 2 cakes and stack and trim them.
I tried to upload a picture, but it didn't work, and I have to get ready to go, so I'll have to try another time.
thanks again- I learn so much just reading all the posts!

You should try it with WASC recipe. That way you can fill your 11x15 and make an extra 6" or 8" with the leftover. You cake will be nice and tall.

I have made many 11x15 cakes without bake even strips or flower nails. Just follow the instructions on the WASC cake and bake at 325.

Would 2 boxes of cake mix with extender added be too much?

Phyllis52. I use two boxes with the extender all the time. It'a not a problem and the cake comes out great.

what size cake boards & boxes do you use for your 11 x 15 cakes ladies?

post #24 of 24
I bake 11× 15 in cakes all of the time. 2 boxes of cake mix, not pillsbury. Three boxes for the 12× which is a little longer. No special equipment needed. Altitute does matter in the oven temp setting. Walmart sells the cake boards or you can order from Wilton.
