a lot. icon_biggrin.gif

Ok, seriously, the way I figured it, based on past experience, was it would take about 4 bags (2-lb bags) of p.sugar for every 7 cake mixes (a cake mix = "one batch" of cake batter).

Those pans would use 20-24 mixes so I'd figure 12-15 bags of p.sugar, depending on the BC decors you're putting on.
