Do I need to throw out the mixture?  What will happen with too much baking powder?

Diane - here you can talk "live" to an expert ... just click on "Live Chat".   And next time you have a question add the question mark  as the marker for your question ...... eek, what a sentence.
I'm far from an expert but I say - just go ahead and bake.  See if it turns out OK.

I'm with Nancy, go ahead and bake it.  After it comes out try a little bit.  Don't forget that the filling and powdered sugar will also be a predominate flavor so if it is just a little off you may not notice.

Let us know if you bake it and how it turns out.  As stated above, it might be a little dry, but it might be ok.

It will rise nicely, maybe be very nice and light.   See  what happens!

Accidents occur in the kitchen.

Sometimes accidents give us great new ways to cook things.

Go ahead and bake it.  You have nothing to lose.  It might turn out to be fine.
