I was wondering if there are charts out there to help me know...

How many cups of cake batter per pan size to end up with the tiers all being the same height?

How much fondant to cover each size Square or Round tier?

Thank You for the help!

Here is the wilton baking and cutting guide link, you can go by this for the amount of batter, but you will still have to level off your cake

and here is the link for the amounts of fondant you will need

hope this helps
