I am wanting to make baby blocks for my nephew's dedication cake. I was thinking 9 blocks. Tell me if I am thinking about this correctly.
I have an 8x8x2 square pan so I can do 1 box of cake mix for 2 pans. I will cut each cake and make 4 squares and stack to make 4 2 layer blocks. So I should get 4 4x4 blocks with one cake mix. So I need 3 boxes of cake mix and I need to bake 6 cakes to get my 9 blocks.
Does my math sound okay?? I have never ever made a cake like this so I want to make sure I get it right!
Hi, if I'm reading your calculations of the pan measurements, and how many cakes you will get correctly, then it should go as follows.
One 8x8x2 pan will give you 4 squares which equals two 2layer blocks.
So you need 9 blocks all together. You need to make 5 cakes which will yield 10 blocks.
So, if you can make 2 cakes out of 1 box of cake mix then you need 3 boxes in total (like u said).
I hope this helps you out. Good luck.
