I got a Wilton book cake pan at a yard sale for $1!!!!!
I have seen some great cakes made with this pan in the gallery.It is not a very large pan. Could I bake the cake twice & stack one top of each other, or bake two cakes, put one below the other & then frost, to make a larger cake & more servings? What do you experts think?

I would bake a regular sheet cake to put under it either cut to the same size or just leave the sheet as is.

I have used this pan which I hired from my local cake supply shop. I think they come in 2 sizes so maybe you have the smaller one? The problem with baking 2 cakes and putting one on top of the other is that the base of the cake is curved so when you put it on top, there would be gaps at the edges which would need filling in - they would be quite big I think! I would go with the idea of maybe making a sheet cake and then putting the book one on top.
