I'm guesstimating 5 batches. Your baking times are going to be different also. The cake will be done when it stands away from the side of the pan and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Have you checked the internet for your dried fruits and nuts? It's possible that they will be cheaper if you order them.

I have quantities of batter for regular cakes to fit my wedding pans but haven't yet made a fruit one. If you are making large layers I would purchase a heater core for the centre of the pan. I find I have to use it with carrot cake and even some of my other recipes. They aren't that expensive and Wilton makes one for sure.
