Hi everyone, I have never made a 14 in cake before and I am doing my first next weekend, I am a box cake maker, and I was wondering how many box cake mixes does it take to make 1 layer in the 14 in cake pan? Thanks soo much for your help!
It takes 2 mixes per pan.
2" pan 14" diameter requires 10 cups of batter.
3" pan 14" diameter requires 15 cups of batter.
Link to all four Wilton cake preparation and servings charts:
(Gives batter requirements by pan size, as well as recommended baking temps. and times.)

I really like the expanded flavors WASC cake recipe.
A full recipe using DH white cake mixes yields a tad over 14 cups of batter and the cake always come out moist.
Here's the recipe:
That depends on what brand of mix you are using. When I made my first 14in round last year I used Pillsbury cake mix. I made the mistake of using only two boxes of mix. The layers werent tall enough and didnt rise enough over the pan to level them properly. So if you are a pillsbury girl, you'll need 2 1/2- 3 mixes per layer.
Hope this helps
2 mixes is assuming it's a round pan. A 14" square pan uses 3 mixes. (I'm a Betty Crocker girl).
kara here is a boxed cake recipe that make 15 1/2 cups of batter. I made this for a wedding cake I am doing and had batter leftover so I made cupcakes and it is very yummy. Hope you enjoy.
This cake recipe is the maximum quantity for your 5 quart mixing bowl. It mixed up perfect in my Kitchen Aid Accolade. It yielded 15 1/2 cups cake batter.
2 Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake mixes (I guess you could use any flavor)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
4 Sticks Butter (I used half butter, half margarine)
2 2/3 cups water
1 box French Vanilla Pudding Mix (instant)
2 tsp Baking Powder
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, mix until blended. Add cake mix, pudding, flour and baking powder. Blend on low while drizzling in water in a thin stream. Mix until smooth (doesn't take long), and bake according to directions for your pan size. I had to share this because it turned our so good. I hope someone else enjoys!!
Hey, Sue -
Do you know how much cocoa powder or melted chocolate is needed to convert this recipe to a chocolate cake?
I would use DH chocolate cake mix and chocolate pudding to make this a chocolate cake
