This is the first time I will be using a 10" cake pan. Can anyone tell me how many cake mixes will it take to make two.

I need this for my Tall cake class.

Any help welcomed.

I use 1 box of Duncan Hines mix for each 10" pan. You may want to put a collar on the cake pans to avoid any spills just in case the cake rises over the pan. It's never happened to me but it happens all the time to my neighbor. My guess is that it has to do with oven temperature. Good luck!

I usually use 1 whole cake mix in the 10". So I would say 2 cake mixes, but if you are using betty crocker or pillsbury you need to watch it. They are not making them as big and I have heard that some have had a problem with them. I would try DH's. Anything as big as or bigger than a 10" needs a heating core, but I have got along just fine without one everytime I have made one. Best wishes.

I use the Duncan Hines mixes and use 3 mixes when I bake a 3"x10" pan, using 1 1/2 mixes in each pan.
