This may sound a bit silly but I'm still not an expert at cake baking etc. I have a cake decorating class next week and I wanted to make a red velvet cake, the recipe I want to try uses oil and baking soda/vinegar mixture but no baking powder. Is it normal for it not to have baking powder and will it still rise?
Also the recipe calls for 3 eggs but that would make 10 cups of batter and all I need is about 5 cups so how do I deal with "halving" the egg content to make a smaller batch?
thank you, I appreciate any feedback as I would like to make the cake today and attempt the "freezing method" for the first time.
