For a shortcut, remember that a 9-inch round cake pan holds about 6 cups (if the batter is 1 1/2 inches deep). A 13-by-9-inch pan holds 12 cups. And a standard cupcake pan, with 1/2 cup batter in each of six cups, holds 3 cups. So a two-layer cake batter should convert easily to 12 cupcakes or a sheet cake.
The depth of the pan is key to note whether you’re dealing with a single layer or double layered cake. If you want a single layer cake, use a deeper pan. If you’d like multiple layers, you have two options: use two shallow pans to bake two thinner cakes, or use one deep pan to create a tall cake that you can cut into layers once it cools.
