I just noticed that this recipe and the next one (Sacher Torte) are very close (same recipe with different filling), so I was thinking of making minis, half Speakeasy and half Sacher Torte style, what do you think?

I was thinking the same thing! Kill 2 birds with one stone. 🙂

What size/type cake pans do you use to make your minis?

I have a “Texas” size muffin pan that works great for mini cakes, here is a link to a cake I scaled down and made minis with baked in that pan — http://nummykitchen.blogspot.com/search?q=perfect+party+cake

I think I’ll use that again for this recipe.

I have 6 inch cake pans that I plan to use.

Mmm, good idea! I like the mini idea. I think I’m going to be VERY creative with this one and adapt it to my family’s tastes.

Halved the recipe the first time and made in 3 mini springform pans. For some reason the top crusted but once I cut into it, there was a HUGE crater beneath the surface. Going to try it again. I hope it turns out better the second time around, as I don’t have great luck with egg whites in cake. *crosses fingers*

Mine is baking right now. I used a 9×2 round pan instead of a 8×2 because I don’t have one – and I have no idea how it would have fit in the smaller pan! I filled my 9×2 very high and I still had enough for 5 cupcakes!! Anyone else have a LOT of batter? Maybe I whipped it too much?

So I decided to go ahead and do the whole cake instead of minis. It is in the oven baking now. I used the springform mentioned later in the recipe (which is approx 8 by 4) and hopefully the batter won’t overflow!
