Tuesday Tip: How to Make Half a Cake
Sometimes a full cake is just too much. You can use half of a cake mix to make half a cake or half as many cupcakes. Simply use half the cake mix (just eyeball it). Then cut all the other ingredients in half. If the recipe calls for 3 eggs just use 2.
I did this a few years ago for my sister's birthday when we had a small dinner party. I baked the cake in ramekins instead of cake pans. I made three layers which made a really cute little cake! This is just the right amount for 3-4 people.
