Hi there - I am new to cake making/decorating. I purchased two wilton pans which tell me to bake using a 2 layer cake recipe. I don't have any 2 layer cake recipes. Is someone able to give me some basic ones - vanilla/chocolate/butter ones? Thanks so much.

Hi Rachael and welcome to Cake Central. Most box or scratch mixes will make a 2 layer cake. Search thru the recipe section here on CC. There are lots of really good recipes.

Hope this helps!

I use this as using just box mix recipe instructions doesn't make the cake able to withstand heavy icing and tiers.

When using the White Cake mix to bake a large layer, tier or party cake, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. You will bake all sizes at this temperature. Grease and flour the pan. For each box of mix, add the following:


· 1 & 1/3 cups of water

· 3 egg whites

· 1 tablespoon of oil



Don't combine more than two mixes at one time. Beat for two minutes.

(amt of batter)
Bake Time

6" x 2" deep pan
2 1/4 cups
35-45 minutes

8" x 2" deep pan
3 3/4 cups
40-50 minutes

10" x 2" deep pan
6 cups
45-55 minutes

12" x 2" deep pan
8 cups
45-55 minutes

14" x 2" deep pan
11 cups
45-55 minutes

16" x 2" deep pan
15 cups
45-55 minutes

18" x 2" half round
10 cups
50-60 minutes

11" x 15" x 2" deep pan
12 cups
45-55 minutes

12" x 17" x 1" deep pan
10 cups
35-45 minutes

12" x 18" x 2" deep pan
15 1/2 cups
37-47 minutes

18" x 24" x 2" deep pan
27 1/2 cups
43-53 minutes



Each mix yields 5 1/2 cups of batter. Cool 15 to 30 minutes in the pan on a wire cooling rack. Remove from the pan using the rack to support large layers.

When using Chocolate based mix (devil's food, swiss chocolate, etc) for large layer, tier or party cakes, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. You will bake all sizes at this temperature. Grease and flour the pan. For each box of mix add the following:

· 1 & 1/4 cups of water
· 3 eggs
· 1/4 cup of oil

When using any flavor other than white or chocolate for large layer, tier or party cakes, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. You will bake all sizes at this temperature. Grease and flour the pan. For each box of mix add the following:


· 1 & 1/4 cups of water
· 3 eggs
· 1 tablespoon of oil
