    Scaling cake recipes up and down

    Scaling cake recipes up and down 6th Apr 08 at 7:10 PM
    OK, I have searched but couldn't come up with anything.

    I need to make a cake for my in-laws Pearl Wedding Anniversary. I've found the cake I want to make. 2 tiers; 1 is lemon and the other is chocolate.

    Right my question is this...... the recipe for the lemon cake is for a 9 inch tin, but I want to scale it down to a 6 inch tin, and the chocolate cake is for a 12 inch tin and I want to scale it down to an 8 inch tin. My theory is cutting down the ingredients by a third and watching it closely whilst cooking :confused: Does this sound like it my work? If not, any ideas/tips/conversion sites readily welcomed.

    Thank you domestic goddesses
