Hi Cakers!

I have a Kitchen Aid 5 quart mixer. I always double my cake mix recipes. I was wondering, do you think 3 mixes will fit in my KA mixer?

I am hoping someone here has done this with success.

I use DH box mixes. Eggs, oil and Sour Cream is all that is added.

My 10 and above pans need more than 2 mixes. This is why I ask. Trying to cut back on time.

Thanks in advance!

I think 3 would be to many. I dont think your motor will like it too much either (=

I tried it and it didn't work. I now have a 6 quart Pro series KA for this reason. It's always nice to have 2 KA's working in harmony together!

3 mixes with all the rest of the ingredients will be too many. It will not have enough room to correctly mix everything completely. Don't ask how I know. ;0(

Same as fedra - I bought a 6 qt just to handle three mixes. It isn't the motor size - it is the bowl size. The bowl just isn't big enough.

This is when I pull out the old fashioned hand mixer. I have some huge halloween bowls that I use if making more than 2 mixes and it gets the job done. I own one bowl big enough for 5 batches but I never make more than 3 at a time or else the quality seems to suffer.
