Hi can anyone tell me what size cake mix I need for the classic wonder mold please? i.e. would an 8" round cake mix suffice or a 9" round? I'm in the UK and wondered what size recipe to use.

thank you

A typical US boxed mix makes a two-layer 8" or 9" round cake (or a 9x13 sheet or 24 cupcakes). Obviously the 9" would not be as tall as the 8" but the package directions don't bother to make a distinction. icon_smile.gif

The wonder mold is designed to hold that size boxed mix.

I've found that it works better to use somewhat more batter than that in it, so if you have a favorite recipe that fills two 8" rounds you might want to double or do 1.5x. You can always make cupcakes with any excess. Or bake an extra 8" round and stack the mold cake on top.
