Depending on the high or number of fillings. I'm thinking for the 16 you'll need 3 to 4. For 14 about 3 and for a 10 you need 2. I like to make my cakes high, about 4in.

Here...bookmark this page. It will tell you how many cups are needed in a pan as well as servings:

You might try to WASC your recipe because it gives more bulk to the cake and makes it sturdier.

I use this chart.

With DH cake mix, they generally make 5-6 cups of batter, but it varies on flavor. White mix usually makes the lower end, around 5, chocolate falls in the middle, and the only one I know of that makes (or did) a full 6 cups of batter is the Golden Butter Recipe.

As was mentioned using a recipe like the WASC or the extender recipes you can bulk up your cake mixes, and add about two cups more batter per mix.
