Does anyone have a list or chart telling how many cups of cake batter works best in 3 inch high square cake pans? I would hate to "guesstimate" on this and end up with overflowing cakes! HELP!! Thanks....
I use Wilton's chart for 3 inch pans that shows how much batter for various pans. Here's a link:
Hope this helps!
Thank you! I have the Wilton chart for 2 inch high pans, but couldn't find one for the 3 inch. I noticed that the chart only goes up to a 14 inch square. Have you ever made a 16 inch? If so how much batter do you use? I am making a wedding cake the end of May and the largest tier is a 16 inch. I have never used the 3 inch pans before, so I need to get this figured out before it's time to bake. uuuggghh
Just an idea:
Use a measuring cup of water to fill the cake pan to the height recommended for the batter. Add up how many cups of water it took and you will have an estimate of cake batter necessary to fill the pan to that same height.
I use this idea for unknown pans the first go round then make a note of what was needed!
That's a good idea about using the water as a guideline. Thanks for that tip!
That is such a great idea, thanks!!!
