For 2 layers you will need approximately 16 cups of batter http://www.wilton.com/cakes/making-cakes/baking-wedding-cake-2-inch-pans.cfm

This recipe is delicious and it has adjustments for the # of servings http://www.food.com/recipe/white-almond-sour-cream-wedding-cake-69630 If you are making 2 layers in a 16x16 pan is 128 servings.

also you are going to need heating cores to bake a cake that large. Google them if you are unsure what they are.

Figure out how many cups is in one recipe and go from there.  I'm afraid I'm the worst when it comes to increasing recipes.

I know the average box mix makes about 4-5 cups.

 

SO that means that 16 cups would only be 1  2" layer
