A question about a recipe: Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds

I have a question about the recipe "Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds" from Sarah Jampel. hello! can I safely double this recipe (or should i just make twice)? would be great for Christmas dinner/dessert, but a 9" won't be enough. Thanks!

If by doubling you mean cooking twice the amount in a single large cake pan, I wouldn't. You'll likely have troubles with baking times, undone middle of cake, etc. Better to make 2 batches or 1 doubled batch and cook in two 9" pans. To serve, you can treat them as two cakes or two layers of a single cake, putting icing between & on top...maybe leaving sides open (newish style in wedding cakes). Good luck and enjoy.

Thanks so much for your quick (and informative) response! I should have specified, plan to use 2 x 9" pans. This is perfect! Thanks again!!
