I have never made a homemade cake before and I am going to make a 3 tiered paisley shaped birthday cake for my friend. First, how much cake batter will I need for the Wilton paisely pans and second, how full should I fill the pans?

Thanks for the help!!

WOW! You have never made a homemade cake before and you are starting with a 3 tier!! You go girl!!! lol. Don't forget to use dowels and cake boards. I will give you a link to help out with that. I will send you a few threads actually on cake filling, baking, cutting...etc! Hope this helps...the threads should answer all your questions. icon_biggrin.gif Welcome to CC!!

I found this information about the paisley pans on another site:

9x6.....3 cups batter - 9 party/13 wedding servings

12 3/4x9.....7 cups batter - 28 party/38 wedding servings

17x12.....10 cups batter - 40 party/56 wedding servings


Be sure and post a picture! Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif
