On cake converter where does it show cooking times. It’s converted my recipe but it’s not showing how long to cook it.

Hi the converter says use 7.6 eggs. I’m not sure how I go about measuring the .6 what do you recommend I use. 7 or 8 eggs. Many thanks Keely

I put all the ingredients in as written which were 9 and it only gave me 6 ingredient measurements so I still am not sure some of those ingredients would make a difference as 1 was liquid?How should I increase this recipe if you could help it would be wonderful ?Thank you

Brilliant site, thank you. Many times I have just used a different sized tin or guessed amounts but for a change I thought I’d check and hey presto found this! Just what I needed for my daughters birthday cake... so it should turn out well????

Pansy - Your Question:
I have used the converter before and it has worked fine but no new recipe is appearing this time. I would appreciate your help as I have checked that I have done everything correctly several times. I think I must be missing something. Many thanks.

Our Response:
It is still working. Make sure you have entered all ingredients and the relevant units plus the tin size. Thenenter the new tin size (in the same units). It should work.

mrsdebbiedoodah - Your Question:
I think I may be missing it but I can't see a print button to click to make a printer friendly version of the new recipe?

Our Response:
No there is no print button unfortunately. The easiest thing to do would be to screenshot the page and then print off.

BizzieB - Your Question:
I listed all the ingredients plus cake size but got 'infinity gram' throughout. What did I do wrong? I'm trying to convert my recipe from 9" round tin to an 8" round tin.Thanks

Our Response:
You need to include the size of your existing tin and the size of the new tin and make sure the units are the same in each case.

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.
