Use this chart as a guide when baking
wedding cake tiers. Fill pans 1/2 to 2/3 full; 3 in.
deep pans should be filled only 1/2 full. Batter amounts
for the 2 in. cakes on the chart are for pans 2/3 full
of batter. An average 2-layer cake mix yields 4 to 5 1/2
cups of batter. For large cakes, always check for
doneness after they have baked for one hour. For pans 11
inches and larger, we recommend using a heating core to
insure even baking. Icing amounts are very general and
will vary with consistency, thickness applied and tips
used. These amounts allow for top and bottom borders.
Number of servings are intended as a guide only.
