I am using 2-6" pans for the first time. Do I use all of the cake batter or put some into another pan? Also should I use my bake even strips on these small pans?

Well, 2 6" rounds that are 2" deep need 2 cups of batter each. One cake mix is 4.5 if you want to be precise measure out 2 cups and pour into the pans and leftovers go for cupcakes If I were you I'd toss in the extra quarter to each makes my life easier? Well, you CAN use bake even strips the sticky part will just overlap a bit

Please refer to Jeanne G's Frequently Asked Questions Topic for the batter amount links and answers to MANY other problems!

For future reference here is a chart showing amount of batter needed for each pan size:

http://www.wilton.com/cakes/making-cakes/baking-party-cake-2-inch-pans.cfm

Cake mixes vary in the amount of batter they make. Especially while you are learning the craft I think it is best to measure the batter for your pans, and use the leftover batter for cupcakes. (Cupcake liners in custard cups are convenient for baking a few cupcakes along with the cake.)

I use the baking strips on all size pans. You may be able to get by without them ... but there is no harm in using them and they may help. If you already own them, you might as well use them. On the other hand, if this isn't an "important" cake you could experiment on baking without them, and you'll know for next time if you need to bother.

Good luck!

I have 2- 10"cake pans and would like to use the butter cake recipe. How long do I bake the cakes?

Refer to this chart for amount of batter, temperature, bake time, number of servings, and even an estimate of the amount of frosting needed:
