  • Make the cake batter according the cake mix instructions on the package.
  • Spray the square and circle cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Fill the cake pans with the cake batter to approximately the same height in each pan so that the cakes will be approximately the same thickness (the square pan will need more batter than the circle pan).
  • Bake the cakes based on the package instructions on the cake mix for an 8” pan.
  • Allow the cake to sit for approximately 10 minutes to cool slightly in the pans.
  • Then remove the cakes from the pan and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the cakes are cool, cut the top of the cakes to make sure that they are level.
  • Then cut the circle cake in half.  Try to cut it right down the middle of the cake.
