I used duncan hines for the chocolate and white cakes (altering the recipe as Duncan Hines say to when making tiered cakes by using different amounts of oil, water and eggs than what the box says). The question is, I want to make a Duncan Hines yellow cake but the DH website does not give advice for making yellow cakes for tiered cakes. The yellow will be my top tier. How much oil, water and eggs do I use for yellow cake mix or should I just follow the box instructions?

First of all, Welcome to the greatest cake web site on the Internet!!!
You should be just fine following the box directions especially with the top tier, I never used doctored mixes till I started hanging out on this web site..Tee Hee
So don't sweat it, your top tier will be just fine
