I need to know how much batter to make for the humming bird cake to fill the following pan sizes 8x8x2, 9x13x2,12x18x2?

I want to make this for my daughters wedding, and am using the mango icing.

From the editor:

Hi Callie,

Here's the amount of batter you'll need for the pan sizes:

8" x 2" round - 4 cups
9" x 13" x 2" - 8 cups
12" x 18" x 2" - 14 cups

So, that's about 3 1/2 recipes of the Hummingbird Cake.

Good luck.
