Bride Idea

If you are using an unusual cake tin and are unsure of the quantity of the cake mix to use, you can easily work out the quantity by measuring the volume with water.

To do this completely fill a 20 cm (8 inch) round cake tin with water, then pour this into the shaped tin until completely full.

This way you can calculate how many quantities of the basic 20 cm (8 inch) mixture will be needed to fill the tin.
