    • Treis, I’m sure you can double it, but since I haven’t done it, I’m not sure of the exact cooking time. I wouldn’t double the baking time, just bake in 10-15 minute intervals, then stick a long toothpick in to see if it’s done, if the toothpick comes out clean, then take the cake out! Good luck!

  1. How come my glaze is not white like the picture? I followed the directions. The glaze is grayish. What did I do wrong?
