Hmm, I don't use boxed mixes so I'm not quite sure how many boxes you would need...I think the typical mix produces 6 cups of batter.  A 6 inch pan takes 2 cups of batter so that would be 4 total cups...and a 10 inch (2 inch deep) pan takes 6 cups of batter...So it would look like you would need 3 boxes of cake mix and you will have some left over for cupcakes.

 

I store my fondant flowers at room temperature.  I add either tylose  powder or gumpaste to my fondant so it hardens faster and leave my flowers in a cool, dry place.

Thanks so much for your answers.
Another question. We are making cakes on Thursday Night. Hopefully ice them Friday. So it will be all ready for Sunday morning party. Now I will have the cake in the fridge on Saturday, will that effect the fondant flowers? Or will they be hard by then?

I would wait until Sunday to put the fondant flowers on...Sometimes, when you refrigerate fondant and then bring it to room temperature it can cause condensation causing your flowers to become wet/limp.

I can't decorate on Sunday as we have a housefull. So basically want the cake finished Friday Night. I might use a 50/50 blend of gumpaste and fondant. That should work.

I made a princess castle cake it was one of the first 'big' cakes I made. I was going to use the Wilton but I agree, seemed a little confusing!! So I went on to use the Betty Crocker video to help me and changed a few things along the way. It resulted in me ending up with a completely edible cake which everyone loved. Hope you get it figured out!! 

PS: I posted a picture of the finished cake and a link to the video I used to help me.

 This was one of my first 'big' cakes I did. My partners sister asked me to make a princess castle cake for her daughters 2nd birthday. After looking at various designs on google, I found one that I used the structure of and just added the design myself as I wanted to make everything edible being a childs cake. It was super easy and good fun to make :)
