It depends on your recipe and how much your batter rises. Some of my tins I fill halfway and others 3/4.

or use this Wilton Serving Amount Chart:


It shows you how many servings, how much batter per 2" pan, and even how much buttercream you need - I refer to this all the time.

It is sooooo messy to measure batter by the cup :(

It is much easier to fill a pan 2/3 to 3/4 full.

Over time one will learn how much batter that equals - like most Wilton shaped pans, a 10x2" round, an 8x2" square (and maybe others I can't remember right off) use the batter of one box cake mix  --- OOPPPSS

that was before the stupid companies decided to decrease the amount of cake mix in each box :( 

Now the charts are going to have to be re-done!
