I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but I am going to be making my first square cake. My question is how much cake mix am I going to need to fill a 16x16x2 pan. I can't find any of the info that came with my pan so I am at a loss. I am use to making standard cakes nothing this size. If someone could help me out I would appreicate it. Thanks in Advance

Hi and Congrats on your 1st post, hogue. icon_smile.gif

Wilton's cake preparation and servings charts for 2" pans:

The 16" square requires 15-1/2 cups of batter, so I'd say three DH cake mixes should do it.
