Topic: How many cups of batter are in the average box mix?

I'm trying to figure out how many boxes of cake mix I need to buy for each layer. Thanks!
Also, do you always follow these recommendations for batter amounts when baking these size cakes:
6in round = 2 cups of batter
8in round = 3 1/2 cups of batter
10in round = 6 cups of batter
12in round = 7 1/2 cups of batter
OR do you add a little more to the pan just to make sure it reaches over 2 inches when baked?

Quick question. I'm using a 12" round for the first time this weekend but it's gonna be a doctored up cake mix recipe. I am bit confused here you said 2 box mixes for a 12" but is that for a one layer or two layer? and with the doctored up reicipe would that be too much?

The two boxes are for one 12" layer. I never doctor up my mixes but imagine that you would have a little extra batter. In that case, just make sure you don't overfill your pan......it should be a little over half full. If you have batter left, make cupcakes and put in zip lock bags and freeze or if you're needing a 6" round, you might have enough to make one of those.

Jackson25: I just made two 2" high 12" rounds recently using the WASC recipe (an extender/doctored mix recipe: see the recipe forum) with two box mixes. Yesterday, I made a 1 box WASC and it made 1 8" round - two inches high and one six inch round - also two inches high. Alternatively, the 1 box WASC also makes two six inch rounds (2" high pans) and 12 cupcakes. :-) HTH.
