I have an amazing chocolate cupcake recipe that I would like to try in a cake form.  Is there a general rule of thumb for these kind of conversions with temperature and length of baking or is it more that I need to play around and just find the right amount of batter/temp/time??

I'm sure that I can.... but my questions are.... do I keep the temperature the same? and what about length of time in the oven?

I hope you saw Gale's post on this.
She gave a lot of great info about times.
For the most part temperatures are the same.  I have found though if you are using an airbake pan, one of the air insulated pans they bake lighter so you might want to increase temp a bit or possibly time but always check at the earliest time given and adjust.
