How come there's no option for a rectangular cake pan?

Hi I need a recipe and cooking times for a 16 inch by 6inchround Madera cake. Please.
Pickers - 25-Sep-16 @ 8:03 PM
Just converted a recipe that scales 5.7 times, that means I need 23 eggs and lots more stupidly high quantities for a 12" cake. A cooking temp and duration guide for the larger cake would be good too.

Hi. I've done the recipe converter which was great and this is probably a stupid question, but now I have to use 4.7 eggs. How do I work that out? Or do I just use 5? Cheers Jo

Hi, Great app but I have the problem of trying to work out how much batter to use in a rectangular tin.

sally - Your Question:
Is there a reason why you cant just double or triple a cake recipe ??

Our Response:
No as long as you keep the proportions right and adjsut the cooking time accordingly. Sometimes the texture/consistency will be different if you cook it all in one tin rather than using separate smaller sized tins.

Bertha - Your Question:
This is a terrific help. However, like a previous query, my original cake recipes are for 2 or sometimes 3 tins. How does this work with the conversion. There isn't an option for how many tins.Be most grateful for your help.Many thanks

Our Response:
No ther widget does not allow for this unfortunately.You could try breaking it down into separate calculations...for each tin etc.

Richard Patterson - Your Question:
Hi brill app, but need advice. I have a recipe that is 5.459 kilos in total. It will make enough batter for 10inch 8 inch and 6 inch cakes 3inch deep. I want to make a small test cake but unsure of what diameter tin to put in the original tin box. Tried to put 24 inch in but the cake scales down to a very small size and the recipe doesnt look right.thanks in advance.

Our Response:
Not sure to be honest. This a really large quantity of batter...what is your original recipe?

Babs3466 - Your Question:
I love using this. The only problems I have is it only works with round and square tins and it doesn't tell you the new baking times.

Our Response:
Have you tried the Cakeometer App? if you've a smartphone or tablet this will help you with cooking times etc.
CakeBaker - 5-May-16 @ 2:06 PM
Great App - and FREE as well! Thank you. As to people stressing in the comments about loosing info and needing a log in - the App is FREE! Of course the mathmatical calculations will not round up and down for you, it is an exact science. If you use your common sense, as long as you round all ingredients up or down, you should be fine. Another idea would be to add info, and work it out from the eggs. So say your new ingredients are 4.7 eggs - and it was 2 before. Round down to 4 eggs and then you can see you just need to double everything OR round up to 5 eggs, get your orig quantity of 2 eggs, divide everything by 2 then x by 5. For a FREE App, I am happy to let all my students know how well this works. Thank you :)

Can't get this to work - just coming up with "infinity" against ingredients Help!
Baker - 26-Apr-16 @ 10:22 PM
After changing to a new phone and downloading both my cakeometer and cakeulator apps from my iCloud I've lost all my recipes,previous quotes and additional ingredients from both and it's not the first time it's happened. I then spent ages rewriting and re-adding them all,only to have to reset my phone to resolve an issue(unrelated),so I've lost everything again! I love the apps but my patience is wearing thin-surely in this day and age there must be a way to combat this?! Even a simple login option which would also allow you to use the apps on multiple devices?
KB3873 - 10-Mar-16 @ 5:41 PM
I LOVE this app!! I make lots of cakes, tiered or otherwise and it never fails me.If you have ingredients missing then it's probably because you have entered a 1/2 or a 1/4 which it doesn't recognise... just pop in .5 or .25 instead.Some people have asked about cooking times... well, you can't have everything and I think common sense needs to be put into use! If it's smaller then just check it sooner, or leave longer if it's bigger and don't increase the temperature!!Another fab app is Cake Stacker... if you bake for a living don't leave home without it!Calculates everything from tier shapes, previews and gives you dowel, ribbon and fondant quantities!

The cake converter worked a dream, many thanks for this.I had also hoped to be advised of the time difference in different size tins, but could not find this information unfortunately.Can you help please?
Murphy - 6-Oct-13 @ 10:14 PM
