Someone here made one a while back, cant remember who though, i think they cut a round cake in half and stood it up, make handles as you like.

Here is one I did. I cut a 3 inch round in half. It was not difficult at all.

When you cut this cake in half - how do you fill it - vertically or horizontally?

you fill it horizontally, but then flip it on its side (cut sides down) so that the filling ends up vertical
