im making my grocery list for an upcoming wedding cake and need to know how much of each ingredient i need,the sizes of the wedding cake are 14"12"and 10"squares,all to be double layered equaling 4 inches high
my question is that if i was to use kakeladis original wasc recipe,how many batches of it would i need to make to make 2 layers of the 14 inch cake?
i did some research on the forums and found out[and please someone correct me if im wrong]that one batch of her recipe is perfect for making a 10 inch square[im not too sure,would that make one 10 inch square/layer or 2 10 inch squares?]
and that 1 1/2 recipe of the wasc will make a 12 inch square[again,2 12 inch layers or just one?]
im sorry,i know this is a really dumb question but i HATE math and my brain just does not want to work the way id like it to today,and so after literally hours of trying to find the answer ive given up and am calling in the troops
please help!
thanks in advance

One cake mix plus the other ingredients in wasc makes for me 8 cups of batter so then
go to
>wedding cakes
>wedding cake data chart
>Cups Batter for 1 layer

And you can figure it out there.

I mean you might get a bit less/more batter but that's the ball park.

And with that thought it never hurts to over buy on your ingredients a little because it saves on those unplanned annoying extra trips to the grocery store when you might need to redo something or whatever.

So I think wasc formulas are usually written with two box mixes so that of course makes for me 16 cups of batter--I think some of us get a little less depending on which cake mix we use.

Let me know if that helps you.

i don't know if this will help, but last weekend, i made a 10" 8" 6" round (all two inches) using this WASC recipe

this recipe gave me a little more than enough for each of the three pans.

Using Rebecca Sutterby's basic WASC recipe (and 2 DH white cake mixes) I get a tad over 14 cups of batter.
