8 inch Sphere cake quantities


I am making a disco ball. I need to make 2x 8inch semi sphere cakes and stag them together for the sphere effect.
Can anyone help with quantities needed for vanilla sponge? Please?

Thank you



Hi Christina

At the moment, I am unable to set a link for you. However, if you search in this section for Sphere Cake, you will find some answers which offer how to scale quantities for a dome cake. Another way would be to use the quantities for an 8 inch round cake x 4 inches deep. Divide the mixture between the the two hemispheres. ( medium eggs). You’ll need to keep an eye and nose for doneness.

Hope this helps.
