How much cake mix do I need?

It’s a good question and usually the thing that confuddles confuses me most when I bake.
Just how much cake mix do I need when making a specific sized cake?

Recently I’ve posted a recipe for Sponge cake and also for a Basic fruit cake. So I’ll use these recipe amounts as a base, to give you an idea about how much you will need for different tin sizes.
