Hi and Welcome on your 1st post, Icakesbychristi. icon_smile.gif

Cake mix batter yields vary by brand and flavor. (Usually one undoctored cake mix yields 4 to 5 1/2 cups of batter.)

The only way to positively know if you have 6-1/2 cups of batter is to either measure or weigh the batter.

Using the WASC cake recipe and 1 DH white cake mix will yield a tad over 7 cups of batter (but this isn't a really firm cake):

BlakesCakes enhanced cake mix recipe is firmer, but only yields about 5 cups of batter:

Might be easier to just make two pound cake mixes (and measure).
