I am doing a wedding cake for my nephew and niece-to-be and I gave them some ideas that I thought I could pull off and the one they picked a square with 4 layers. 12,10,8 & 6 inches
What I didn't take into consideration is how expensive the cake pans are and how I should have purchased them over the last couple of months instead of waiting until the last minute.
I purchased a 12" x 3" fat daddio pan for $25 and I have a square 8" pan already.
Is there any chance that I could bake a 12" and cut it down to be a 10"?
Could I cut off the edges or would it be better to cut it down the center both ways and take out the amount of cake to make it 10" and sandwich the pieces back together with icing?
Or should stretch my budget and buy a 10" and try to turn an 8 into a 6 since the 6 wont be supporting anything.
Buying the 12, 10 and the 6 would be too much since I am doing this for free, I would be spending nearly $60 on just pans for a one time thing.
I dont know anyone who has pans I could borrow.
