I haven't made a square cake yet, but I'd like to try it. I was wondering what size cake pan you use most often, 8-9-10? and do you use a 2" or 3"?

If I were starting out, I would invest in an 8" sq pan two inches high.

Good luck with your new venture!

Definitely a 2" deep pan. It depends what you bake most often for..
b'day? family? how big is your family? How many servings are you looking for?
An 8x8x2 pan will hold one cake mix.
A 10x10x2 pan uses 1 1/2 mixes = perfect for my original WASC recipe.

I agree. 8" square holds the same volume of batter as 9" round. So if most of your recipes use 9" rounds you just have to use the square pans without having to adjust the recipe.

2" deep.
I also use the 6" square a lot ... for the wedding top tier, and for 2-tier smaller birthday parties.

Thanks so much! I'll start with the 8" and go from there!
