Wilton has a great chart that tells you how long to bake different pan sizes.

I use it as a guide because of course every oven is different. Everyone doesn't have a good sense of guessing so a guide can be helpful.

The amount of time you bake your cake would also depends on how much cake mix you put in the pan. I fill my pans 3/4 high, but some cakers only fill half way.

Now, I use the tooth pick method.

For two 6 inch pan, I would set the timer for 20 minutes (oven at 350) and then check it with a tooth pick. Then, depending on how the tooth pick looks, would then determine how much longer I left it in the oven. What you want is ... when the tooth pick comes out with little crumbs (not batter) on it the cake is done. Be sure to check the cake in several different places, including the very middle of the cake. Ive found from experience that when the tooth pick comes out clean, I've kept my cake in the oven too long and it tends to be dry. Thank goodness I now freeze my cakes over night to make them more moist.

And, this might sound funny, but when I can FIRST smell the cake around the house I know that I have to RUN to the oven and take it out because it done cooking.

Hope this helps,
Tammy

Excuse me, but something happened to my post in response to the op. I mentioned that relying on a set chart was not ideal as the variations regarding pan brands, the recipe used, how much you put in the pan really affect baking times. And it is gone now. Did that offend someone in particular? Ugh.

Oh good. I thought I was losing my edge or something. icon_biggrin.gif
