time for a new wife then right?

I would use more butter and add a spoon of water. Make sure you mix well to ensure evenness in cooking when you roll them out. Try using a rolling pin and cup instead of rolling them individually.

Cake mix should have its own leavening, unless it is stale.

Your best bet is to contact the RAS. They won't tell you but they may pass it on.

Sounds like it was over-kneeded. This causes it to shrink and harden while baking (and cooling).

Hello, Jodi -

See the chart for a variety of size cakes, the preheated oven temperature (Fahrenheit), and baking time here:

Suggestion, first line the bottom of the baking pan with parchment paper to help keep the bottom of the cake from sticking to the pan. If greasing/buttering and flouring of the cake pan is called for in the recipe, do that to the parchment paper after lining the bottom of the pan with it.

Best wishes.

It cracks because the crust sets before it finishes rising, Take the heat down 25 degrees F.

slice-heaven-com will download the original instructions for a fee. You might be able to wing it without them, knowing that Wilton recommends filling large, deep pans only half deep. Fill it with water first, then pour water into a large measuring vessel to gauge how many cups of cake batter you will need at that depth. The average cake mix makes about 4 cups batter, but they vary. You could always just prepare 2 boxes and reserve any excess for another use. As for baking, this pan will probably take a little bit longer than a 9 by 13 by 1-1/2 at 350 F. Maybe you could add 15 minutes and check on it. Do not open the oven if it is clearly not done.

Most sponge cakes containing baking powder can be baked in standard round cake pans that are greased and floured. I prefer nonstick baking spray, myself. Without leavening, or if cake is delicate, it might help to line the bottom of the pan with greased parchment and leave the sides ungreased. Simply run a butter knife around the sides to release finished cake.

Or you could try the Austin Cake Ball company;
