Topic: 2-layer cake mix?
cbaker 07/29/2011 8:31 AM
I have a the tractor pan and it is saying to use a 2-layer cake mix. I have Pillsbury boxed cake mix and I'm not sure if the 2-Layer cake mix means I need two boxed cake mixes or just one? I did see the cake section here in Wilton had a listing of how much batter to put in pan and I see it says to fill it 2/3 full but I'm still wondering if it's one box or two boxes of cake mix. Help!!?

Welcome to the forum cbaker

Usually a 2-layer cake (original size) is one box. You can always make two boxes to be sure it will fill 2/3's full and use the rest of the batter for cupcakes!

Hope this helps

Most of the character pans (including the tractor) takes one box of cake mix.

My one bit of advice is to make sure your pan is greased/floured really good, so the cake doesn't stick in all the detail nooks and crannies. Good luck!

Yes, this definitely helps! Thanks so much for clearing my mind that 1 box is equal to a 2-Layer Cake.

Wonderful! 1 box it is then, thank you for the clarification! Yes, I'll be sure to grease and flour the pan good as the last one (different shape pan) did stick in places. Thanks for the advice.

Just to be on the safe side and sure there's enough cake to fill the pan. I would add an extender. I would fill the pan 2/3 full and make cupcakes with the rest like luvbakin. I always want to be sure there's enough to do the job (or fill the pan) HTH
