Help! I must make a Kentucky Whiskey Cake in the morning, not just baking but also letting it cool so I can wrap it and mail it before the Post Office pick up at 1:30. The recipe is fairly standard (3/4 lb. butter, 1/2 pound raisins, 1 lb. candied cherries, etc.) and is usually cooked in a large tube pan for "3 to 4 hours" in a somewhat slow oven (300 degrees F). I want to break it down into two loaf pans. How long should I bake the two cakes? I've been totally burning the candles at both ends at work, from early in the morning until very late at night, even on the weekends, for weeks now. I have one window free tomorrow, so I plan to get up early. But how early, pray tell, must I get the cakes into the oven, with this deadline? Thank you! ;o)
