Is there a listing someplace that states how much batter standard cake recipes are ie. 2 layer, 3 layer, etc make? Here is where I need help:

I mentioned at post 16473 above I'm going to bring this cake (link to pix) to a Halloween party next weekend. It came with a recipe for pumpkin cake and well, now that I think about it, I haven't met a pumpkin cake recipe yet that I haven't been underwhelmed by. This will be the main dessert so it needs to taste great too. So I'm thinking either somehow kick this standard looking recipe up a notch or better yet find a great (hopefully T&T) cake of some other type I can bake in this pan. The mold holds 13 cups of water (to the rim and it must fill close to that or it wouldn't get the steam) and the recipe states it serves 14-16.

I'm sure the pumpkin will allow for the lighted eyes/mouth look of the jack-o-lantern but I think a dark cake would be really spooky too.

Help!(Why I decided to make something like this, I've never made before, when I have to work all week and drive up Fri night with this cake I have no frigging idea. Clearly I was insane. If I had more time I'd try a test run to see if I could carve out the center and add filling and still get the cake to hold together.)
