Hi Sweetcakes

Could you please say how deep you want your cake to finish up, and how deep is the tin you will be using? If you have a recipe in mind what size tin is it for and how deep is that tin?

my tin is 12x18x3. although i dont plan on baking that deep, i will probably will make it twice. This is unusual here in the States for a customer to pick out the victoria sponge cake, it is so much differant to what the americans are used to. So i know how to multiply a recipe and figure out the quantity, im just wondering has anyone actually baked a victoria in a pan so big? Will it bake correctly? without drying out on the edges? Thats why i plan on just baking 2 layers and jaming them together. Overall i would like the finished cake to be 3- 3.5: high.

Hi Sweetcakes

Here is your recipe

450 butter
450 gm sugar
450 self raising flour
8 medium eggs
Bake for 25- 35 minutes on 200c or 180 c fan forced oven

Keep an eye on it, I’ve not baked this size before, the largest sheet cake in my repertoire is 12 x 16 at the temp given, this is scaled up to fit your tin. The recipe is from Peggy Porschen’s Pretty Party cakes book for Victoria sandwich sponge Hope this helps.

Thankyou Madeitwithlove.
I appreciate you taking the time to scale the recipe for me. I will let you know how it works out in this size pan after i make it. Thanks again. 🙂

You’re welcome, but please do keep an eye on the time, as I’ve said it is the 12 x 16 which I bake and comes out really lovely. I always place parchment paper on a large cooling tray, put the tray over the cake and upturn. It breaks if you try and take it out in the normal way. Look forward to your feed back, g’d luck.
