I purchased a 3D cake pan and the instructions say to use pound cake or 'pudding added' cake mix. I've looked in my wilton books and can't figure it out.

Do I take pudding (out of a box) and mix in into the batter? If so, how much? I'm assuming this is to make the batter firm and dense so the cake will stand up ok...

Also the pan instructions say to use 6 1/2 lbs of batter, so that means 2 boxes of cake mix, right?

Here is the recipe. It in the recipes. You can just type in 3D in the search. There is also one of chocolate.

I prefer Duncan Hines. You will need two mixes. Once makes about 5-5 1/2 cups. I'd just make cupcakes too!

Decoding CC acronyms:

Betty Crocker & Pillsbury are "pudding added" cake mixes; DH doesn't have pudding in the mix.

mindywith3boys hooked you up with a good recipe (using sour cream). icon_smile.gif

Here's a variation that uses buttermilk:
