Hmm... im kind of having a litle trouble understanding the batter amount. my recipes are enoughfor 9x2 two layers. how do i go about making enough for the 12 or 14? I checked and i have a 14 round that is 3 inches tall. though i suppose that doesn't really matter, does it?

Also, is it weird to have a cake pan that is 3" tall??


Side note: im considering getting a 12" pan, debating getting two so i can do two layers. does this sound reasonable?

This chart is for 3in tall pans.

As far as the batter. I would either go by the chart. If your batter makes enough to fill two 9in round pans and they bake to a full two in tall layer, then your recipe probably makes around 11 cups of batter.

For the 12in round you would need 15 cups of batter, so you can make two recipes and just use out what you need, and bake of the other in a smaller pan to be used later. For the 14 it looks like you need a recipe per 2in tall pan. I don't bake from scratch, so I'm not sure the best way to double the recipe.

I have 2 of each pan size that is in the basic shapes. That way I can bake both layers and not have to bake, wash, grease and bake again.
