Can anyone tell me how many cups of batter you get from 1 cake mix? Trying to calculate how many I need to make a 4-tier with 14, 12, 10 and 8. Thanks alot.

Each brand is different, which are you using?

I believe that the DH Moist yields about 8 cups. (It's all I use, but I rarely pay attention to the yield) FOr what you're wanting to do, I'd buy 6. If you don't need them all, you can probably return one. But I think you need at least 5.

hope this helps. Maybe someone else has a more accurate memory and can help you out better. icon_razz.gif

Each mix yields 5 1/2 cups of batter.

It also depends on the flavor.

Betty Crocker and Philsbury usually make 4 to 5 cups.

DH makes 5 to 6. White seems to be closer to the 5, golden butter 6 cups, and the other favlors are closer to 5.5 cups.

If you doctor the recipes that will affect the amount of batter.

I use Betty Crocker and use:

14" round: 2.0 mixes per pan (so 4 mixes for a 2-layer cake)
12" round: 1.5 mixes per pan (so 3 mixes for a 2-layer cake)
10" round: 1.0 mixes per pan (so 2 mixes for a 2-layer cake
8" round: 0.5 mixes per pan (so 1 mix for a 2-layer cake).

Assuming your 4-tier cake will be a total of 8 layers, you will need 10 mixes.

I believe I get 5 cups from a DH classic white mix.
