If I mix all three at one time do I still beat for the 2 minutes stated on the box OR do I add additional beating time?
I have a kitchen aid and it seems like a 4 qt. mixing bowl. I just don't want to make a big mess.
It is extremely important to not let the batter sit around waiting to go into the oven. Be sure the pan is prepared and your ingredients are ready, so the delay is no more than the 3 minutes or so it will take to get the second batch ready.
When mixing more than one package, multiply the ingredients but do not multiple the mixing time. Two minutes is still the right length to mix.
I would suggest you mix them all together. This way they all will be the same
texture. If you mix them separately and stir one mix more than the other mix
it won't look right. I've made this mistake before and when you cut a two layer
cake, you can tell the difference. You will have to mix just a little bit more because it's more mix. I don't know if your kitchen aid bowl will hold all that mix. I usually
do my mix in a separate bowl with a hand mixer and make my icing with the kitchen aid. Hope this helps! Best Wishes
