    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    Found on Slice of Life's Facebook page. To make things simpler, I'm giving you the cake as originally written, for a 12-cup bundt pan. (This is the standard size for a bundt pan in the United States.) You can play around with what pans you want or if you just want to make all cupcakes. A site I find very useful when trying to figure out what pans to use is Joy of Baking. You can look up your pan size, find out how many cups it holds by volume, and then reconfigure. Sound complicated? It's actually really easy.
