wedding cake

I want to make a 13 inch round fruit wedding cake, using Delia's traditional fruit caked recipe. Can anyone tell me how to increase the ingredients from the 11 inch given in the book?

Hello Just retired,

I haven’t got anything tested but my initial thought was to suggest a 10 egg recipe but I think if it were me I would do 12 eggs and if it’s too deep trim it before icing it.

Best wishes

Hello again,

We have this chart if you just want to add the 4 egg and the 8 egg weights together.

13 inch weddingcake

Thanks. I hadn't appreciated that it needs to be an amalgamation of the 8 inch and 11 inch cake recipes. I'll let you know how it turns out when I have done it; I am doing the 11 inch one at the moment.

Storage

Next problem - where can I find sufficiently large storage tins? Or should I just use turkey-sized tinfoil?

Hello again,

I have seen very large, airtight, plastic storage boxes in shops like The Range and Stewart do a range of commercial size airtight containers (online) but storing it wrapped in parchment and foil will be good as long as it’s on a board to keep it stable.

Best wishes

I have just done a 12-egg quantity, in a 14" cake tin (the shop I hire tins from doesn't do a 13" one). It has turned out beautifully, though I had to cook it in my next-door neighbours' oven, as mine is not wide enough! Thanks for all the advice.
