Cake rise

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I like to bake cakes but I can't get the height I need for my three inch pans? Is the only way to get the height is to add more batter? I sell cakes in my spare time but most of my customers want the high rise cakes.Need to find a way to do this without having to make doubling the recipe I feel I am losing money doing this.

more baking powder

So much of it has to do with your recipe. Some recipes are just predestined to produce lighter, higher cakes. So I'd look for a recipe like that. Also, your technique is important; the manner in which you incorporate your wet and dry ingredients, how you whip your egg foam (if that's what your recipe calls for), etc.


Keep looking and asking - the Internet is full of information from experienced contributors. A video search is a great way to get lessons on the finer points of baking.
