I have an upcoming newspaper cake to do for 60 - 70 people. Serving sizes of 1" x 2".

So I have decided that I need to do 4 - 7" xx 11" cakes. Each layer will be 2" high.

From the way I am reading this


it would appear that I will need 22 cups of cake batter.

Is this correct?

you have the math right.. but ..

if you are using a box mix like DH. it makes aprox. 5 cups. per box of white mix. choc. makes 4.5 cups.

IF you add extenders that will change. and if you are making homemade.. well that is a whole other scenario.

My suggestion is to make a singel layer test cake. There is nothing worse than running out of cake mix in the middle of baking!

I use the Betty Crocker in the WASC and it makes 7 cups.

thank you for confirming that I had read it correctly.

Another question if you dont mind please?

What is the texture of WASC like?

The customer acutally likes the BC Choc Fudge Cake Mix, however it I can extend it to go further that would be fantastic.

I LOVE the texture. I sift the dry ingredients. The BC chocolate cake is one of my most requested.
