comment Why does boiling cream have such a drastic effect on my salted caramel?
Makes perfect sense! We'll probably experiment with simmering the final mixture (with the cream poured in) to see what other consistencies we can achieve too! Thanks so much for your answer!

comment Scaling problems with a cake - mousse layer increases more than other layers
Linear scaling will not work, indeed. What really seems more straightforward and safe right now is to figure out the scaled recipes empirically, then (if it's still necessary or worth the trouble) build an alternative, non-linear scaling model based on those experiments. Thanks a lot for your help!

comment Scaling problems with a cake - mousse layer increases more than other layers
@rfusca I've edited the question to attempt to clarify those confusing bits, but in effect 1) I'm covering the cake in mousse, and 2) I'm asking how to scale in terms of the math.

comment Scaling problems with a cake - mousse layer increases more than other layers
You are right. The top layer cannot be scaled like the other layers can, and the shape and size of our mold cannot be ignored. I just wish there was a more straightforward way to scale it without distorting the final result so much. A rule of thumb, perhaps? Anyway, thanks for the answer!
