So I am going to be making a 2 layered cake in a 10x2 square pan.  Looking at the Wilton conversion chart, it says I should put 6 cups of batter in one pan.  I'm using a Wilton pan and looking at the directions in the pan, it says put 9 cups of batter in the pan.  Does anyone know the correct amount for one layer in this pan size?  Also, I only have one pan so I was planning on baking each layer separately, but would it be faster/easier to bake it as one large cake and just cut the layers?

AIf your pan is 2" you'll have to bake twice anyway to get a 4" high which is standard. My chart says 6 cups for a 2" deep pan; 9 cups for a 3" deep pan.
