If your cake is pale, perhaps you didn't bake it long enough to brown. Remember to use the toothpick-in-the-middle test.

when baking in a large pan, is there an adjustment in the recipe? Say, for instance baking a double batch, 2 cake mixes. Do you have to cut back on the oil?

I would like to make some filled cupcakes(like Mom used to make) but I do not know what mixture to fill them with or how to fill them. Mom use a decorating bag but I do not know what was in the bag!! I tried marshmallow cream, it oozed out from the top of the cupcake! Any suggestions?

That's one way yto do it. I usually NEVER use a toothpick. I use the "spongy" test. If you press your fingertips on the top of the cake and your imprint stays, it isn't done. If your imprint pops back up and away, it's done. Also, if the surface of the cake feels slightly leathery, that's another way to tell it's done!
