New to this and just wondering. How many boxes of cake mix does it take to do a 10x2 cake?I would bake from scratch but I'm pressed for time and it's for a cake class. It's also the first time using this size pan ( I already bought the heating core on advice). I plan on using Duncan Hines any ideas or suggestions?

Are you doing a round cake? It will take 6 cups of batter per layer. An average cake mix is 5 1/2 cups of batter.

I usually use 1/2 recipe of WASC for a 10" cake and end up with a nice tall one.

I don't use the heating core either...use a flower nail, greased and upside down in the center of the pan, and bake at 325. It makes a huge difference in how the cake cooks and it only leaves a teeny little hole in the middle, nothing complicated to patch up.

I use 1 box mix (undoctored) for a 10 x2 round. I use a baking strip around the edge and a greased and floured flower nail in the center instead of a heating core. Works great!
