Ok a couple of questions here:

I am making a standing retangular cake Approx: HxWxD : 18x11x11cm

So i am trying to figure out what pan to use and decided to use my 22cm Square 1.5" deep cake pan.

So 11cm can be slightly less if it turns out that way but i am going to cut the cake into 4 squares and stack them ontop of each other to get to the required height of 18cm

My Question is it would be perfect to get my cake to rise to a 2" depth, can i do that for a square cake? and if so how full should i fill up my pan (I will have a baking paper collar around it) and approx how many normal packet mixes would it take to get to the filling height required?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks icon_smile.gif

You lost me at centimeters.

Fill the pan 2/3 to 3/4 with batter.

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif too funny leah_s. I guess the metric system is not your thing! You can always go with the 3/4 with the batter and trim any access if needed. I usually fill between 2/3 and 3/4 myself but depending on your recipe they may not all rise as much.
