Clover2306 - Your Question:
Hi, I've been asked to make a 12" 10" & 8" Hexagon Cake, do you not do a Hexagon Cake Tin conversion or what can you suggest.Thank You

Our Response:
The cakeOmeter does not include shaped tin sizes unfortunately. If you have a basic 8" round recipe, you could try Lindys Chart here to work out your hexagonal sizes.

How do I convert Greek cake tin sizes into centimetres, eg R50 = ?

Our Response:
It's probably easy to just measure it with a metric or imperial ruler.

Magpie - Your Question:
Hi I’m typing in the ingredients and the size of the cake tin but nothing seems to be showing up or working? Tried on computer and kindle, same thing.??

Our Response:
It's working for us. Be sure you have completed every field. So you will need your cake recipe plus quantities and units of measurement together with the existing tin size (diameter and height etc). Then type in the size of the tin you want to use (diamter and height etc) - the new ingredients are shown at the bottom of the form.

Hello, when 'scaling' volume's etc.......should we also treat time & temperature in the same way as called for in the recipe? Thanks.

Born to Run - Your Question:
Please, does this mean in total divided betweeen the two tins or made twice ie recipe multiplied twice? Thanks Am waiting cooking on your reply thanks very much L

Our Response:
Well it depends on your recipe. If the recipe requires 2 x 8 inch tins but you only have 2 x 7 inch tins just input the ingredients and then change the tin size from 8 to 7.

Hi does anyone have quantities for a12x8inch rectangle cake?
Ang - 11-Apr-18 @ 11:30 AM
I entered in my ingredients which were originally for ca 13" x 9" rectangle cake pan. I converted this to a 6" x 2" round cake pan. Is this just for 1, 6" x 2" round cake pan? If I wanted to make 2, 6" x 2" cake pans, I would simply double it the new recipe?

Chrissy - Your Question:
Are the egg sizes large or medium. I normally use large eggs in my recipes. Thanks

Our Response:
Generally the recipes on CakeBaker are large, but the cakeometer will just adapt your original recipe for a larger or smaller sized tin. So if your original recipe uses medium eggs, then the new one will too.

Chrissy - 26-Mar-18 @ 8:21 AM
To use the converter you need to add ingredients at the top, then the old tin size and then the new. This then gives you the recipe upscale. I wasn't adding the ingredients at the top, assuming it would pull through from previous page.

spud - Your Question:
Hello i have an 8inch tin and a 6inch tin and would like to make a two teir cake, with the bigger sponge being a marble cake and the smaller one being a vanilla sponge how much would I need to use for both cake mixtures and how long would I need to cook it for?

Our Response:
What recipes do you have? What tin sizes do the recipes advise? Sorry there isn't enough information for us to help you here.

Spud - Your Question:
Hi I’m typing in the ingredients and the size of the cake tin but nothing seems to be showing up or working?

Our Response:
Be sure to type in both the size of the tin recommended in the recipe ("existing baking tin") and also the size of the tin you want "new baking tin". Your new recipe is displayed at the bottom. We've just tried it and it seems to be working fine.

I have a cupcake recipe that if you double it, it does a three tiered 8 inch cake. My question is, could I use the doubled quantity to make a two tiered 9 inch cake? Would that be about right or do I need to increase to a 10 inch round tin?
Andria - 7-Mar-18 @ 2:32 PM
Hi, I was wondering what the math was for your widget. Are you basing this on volume or? Thanks

I currently make a Victoria sandwich cake in 2 7 inch tins. I use the recipe 6 Sr flour 60z marg 6oz sugar 3 eggs and 1vbaking powder. I want to make this cake larger ie a 23 cm tin circular. What quantities of ingredients should I use based on the ingredients listed above
Keely - 18-Jan-18 @ 10:37 AM
Hi I think this converter is great - have used it to scale to a large square cake. My question is I have a recipe for a 7 inch cake (one tin) but would like to do the same recipe in 2 x 6 inch. Is the measurements shown for one sandwich tin? Many Thanks mandy

Zomo - Your Question:
I've put the ingredients in to upscale to an 8" Madeira but it only.shows the new ingredients it's not giving me a baking time. Any ideas how much longer for this size? Also where it says eggs x 1.3. would switching from 4 medium to 4 large eggs be enough ? Thanks

Our Response:
Unfortunately our widget doesn't give baking times. We usually bake an 8" madeira for between 1 hour 15 to 1hour 30 mins on 150-160°C (non- fan). Using large extra instead of medium sounds like a good suggestion.

Liz - Your Question:
Hi, Is it possible to bake a rich fruit cake in a larger tin than that stated in the recipe, in order to obtain a shallower cake. If so, how should you adapt the cooking time? Many thanks, Liz

Our Response:
Yes this is possible. It's not always easy to work out (our CakeOmeter IOS app will do it). Delia has a good online scale for fruit cake recipes here
