Hi and welcome!
This is my favorite cake recipe: http://cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-2322-White-Almond-Sour-Cream-Cake-WASC.html
You can do all kinds of flavor variations on it.
Also, if you like to use plain cake mixes (and there's nothing wrong with that ) one cake mix will fill a 10" pan. I like to use a flower nail in the middle of the pan...spray with pam spray and put it upside down in the middle of the pan, before you put the batter in, and it will help the batter cook more evenly, so there's not as big of a hump to cut off the cake when you level it.
You'll be amazed at how much bigger a 10" cake feels than an 8". You can fit a lot more decorations on the top.
I know on the Wilton web site, you can find out how much batter is needed for each different size pan.
