I need some advice as this is quite a challenge! It's my first order outside of the family and for a sculpted cake (eek!). So I'm told it needs to be lighting mcqueen for about 30 kids.
Now my most appraised recipe takes 3 cups of flour, 3 eggs 3 cups of liquid and 3/4 cup of oil. The biggest pan I've got is roughly 9" by 13". The cake doesn't rise much in this size, so do I double the recipe or bake two cakes? I've seen that most recipes for this cake says to use 2 rectangular and a square cake.
I was wondering if this would be big enough, and which colouring to use? I'll be making marshmallow fondant and think that I'll need a LOT of red liquid food colouring. I have some black powder left from a previous bake, so I'll probably use that for black. But would gel colouring giv a brighter colour with a smaller amount, or would I also need more than one container (around here it's sold in little pots and are quite pricy)?
Thanks in advance
