Does anyone know how many recipes to use to fill a 14" X 3" deep round cake pan? I have never made a cake this large. Do I double the recipe? Tripple? Is there a website where this information is posted to help when baking several large cakes. Example: 12" X 3" deep, 10" X 3" deep, etc.

I love this one.....it's really tasty! I have tried other flavorings besides almond also, everything comes out great.

You'll have enough batter from one batch of this to make your 14" round along with a smaller one (description at the bottom).

Good luck!

Oh and be sure you use the heating core or flower nails, or the middle won't bake right. I learned that the hard way!

You can go to the wilton website and they list amounts for all sizes shapes of pans...but according to the insert that came with my wilton 14" round 3" deep pan.... if you want to make a 2"layer it will take 10 cups of batter, bake at 325 for 50-55min, you would need to make 2 of them to get a 4" tier. Or if you want to bake just 1 " layer then you'd torte it and fill to acheive the 4" height...you would need 15cups of batter.

oh, I forgot to say if you're using box mix they are usually 4-6cups per box depending on brand. I always measure. But I did just make the WASC and it made 14 cups of batter.

With the original WASC recipe I believe it took me 2 1/2 recipes.
