Math Challenge May 11

Annalyse found a recipe for a Mothering Cake in an old book at the library. In England during the 1600s, servants often made a Mothering Cake when they were allowed to visit their mothers on Mothering Sunday. The recipe for one small cake calls for one and a half cups of sugar. Annalyse would like to make 2 cakes for Mother's Day. How many cups of sugar will she need to make all of the cakes?
