I think it is note worthy to state that the giant cupcake pan is very easy to work with. Although it is equally important to say that when filling this pan make sure that it only be filled 3/4in. to 1in. from top of each side as it will over flow to adjoining side. Easily fixed but, better avoided! The pan uses one (1 ) and three quarters (3/4) cake mixes. It is alot of fun to make. I only wish there had been abit more in the way of instructions on the packaging.
