I need instructions for making a cake in the 12 x 18 x 2 pan. How many cups of batter and for how long?

This Wilton chart should help you: http://www.wilton.com/cake/cakeprep/baking/times/party_2inch.cfm

For that size pan I'd also suggest using bake-even strips and flower nails or a heating core, to help prevent doming or underbaked centers.

I use this pan all the time. I use box cake mixes.
This pan takes 3 box cake mixes. I also use the bake even strips around the pan. The cake bakes nice and even.
Hope this helps.

If you're using box cake mixes, I use 3 boxes for a 12 x 18 pan. I think each mix makes about 3 cups of batter.

If you are using a doctored cake mix for this pan, I would recommend 2 1/2 boxes. Check the Wilton chart as mentioned.

Oh, I forgot to add........use the heating core as Jeanne mentioned (very important), bake even strips and fill your cake pans 2/3 full. I bake my cakes at 325 degrees.

I have to bake a 11x15 cake tomorrow. I don't have a heating core like mentioned before, but I do have one flower nail. Do I just stick it in the middle of the cake with the pointed side down? Do I still need the bake even strips? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Point end up, rhsu, platform resting on the pan bottom. Grease the nail as you do the pan.

Yes, using bake-even strips with the nail is the best approach.

Good luck!

Where can I get Bake Even Strips for a 12 x 18 x 3 pan? The large Wilton set is not long enough because 60+ inches are needed and its longest is 56 inches.

Just use a sewing needle and pin the strips together
