I've tried the coconut lime cupcakes from VCTOTW and they were amazing. Friend asked me to do a cake though. Advice for converting it to a cake? I'd be using 8 inch sandwich cake tins because want to do a double layer with some of the frosting in the middle...but will i need 2 batches of cupcake recipe or 1? Also, the coconut oil is fab in the cupcake recipe but does make them a bit heavy and oily...wondering if still using the coconut milk, but subbing sunflower oil for the coconut in the batter whould make them a bit lighter?

thanks :)

I've never baked these particular cupcakes, so I can't say much for the oil subs. Maybe make a test batch before hand?

But if the recipe yields 12 cupcakes, it should convert over to 8 inch pans pretty well. By "sandwich cake" do you mean a basic layer cake, or like the bread-slice pan? I am usually able to switch a cupcake recipe to one 8-inch round/square and simply adjust the time for the smaller amount of surface area. 32-35 minutes should do the trick.

Isa applies the same logic to the VCTOTW/IDI chocolate cake recipe: http://www.theppk.com/2008/08/just-chocolate-cake/ It's exactly the same in both recipes, but one is for an 8-inch round and one for a dozen cupcakes. If you're doing two layers, definitely double. You'll probably want to double the frosting, too. Good luck!
