I have to make dessert for 25 people on Thursday and think I've decided on this lemon cakeI don't think it'll be enough so will do double quantity and cook in a rectangular baking dish... cake experts do you agree?
No, don't do this. Make 2 or 3 separate ones and then layer them. Often when you double the amount it won't cook correctly.
For DDs christening cake I used a 29cm round spring form tin and did three separate cokes and layered them. I did them in Red Velvet, pink sponge and white sponge. It looked really cool when you cut into it!
