Hi I am going to make the doctored cake recipe that makes 15 1/2 cups of batter and my question is can I use all margarine instead of butter? How many cups is in 4 sticks of butter?? This is for a wedding cake next weekend.

I don't know about the substitution.

But 1 stick of butter = 1/2 cup (should be labeled on the wrapper also... I went to check but am out of butter icon_surprised.gif )

You can use margarine instead of butter but the flavor will suffer. Four sticks of butter is 2 cups.

thanks for the help. I don't think the flavor will change much because it is french vanilla cake mix I am using.

Where do you get your butter? My sticks are only 1/2 cup, But I use them in 1c increments so if I can find them larger I will do that.

I live in Ontario and our butter comes in one pound.

In U.S. most butter comes in 4/sticks to a pound. Each stick is 1/2 cup so if your is 1 lb. it equals 2 cups. Just cut it in half for 1 cup. Hope this helps.
