You need one box of cake mix. Fill each equally. It will look a little low, but it fills as the cake bakes.

i used one box, with the extender and thought that it was not enough. Next time I will be going with two boxes - filling the pan more and then use any extra for cupcakes.

I thought it was a total of 6 cups of batter (4 in one, 2 in the other) but I'm just going off my memory...

(I think boxed mixes are like 4 or 4.5 cups of batter)

I did the same as coffeecake - it takes more than an extended mix IMO - if you don't get them so they bake up really full, they don't fit together good. I just bake the extra batter in a small cake pan.

I've made this one quite a few times and use 2 boxes. The extra I'll do cupcakes with (if I have the energy). If this is the first time you're trying this cake, watch it carefully. The top bakes faster than the bottom (should've been 2 pans) even at 325. It takes trial and error and a careful eye (cake tester), I still can't time it.

Good Luck!

I have the same problem...the top bakes faster than the bottom. Wilton should have made the two pieces the same size so they baked evenly, or in separate pans as you suggested.

Thank you all for your replies...How long do you leave the 3D cupcake in the oven?
