Just curious, I am currently doing 2 layers on my 4" tall cakes. I use a 4" deep cake pan then cut in half and fill. What is the standard for 4" tall cakes for weddings; is it 2, 3 or 4 layers?

I use two layers. I bake in two pans and sandwich them together.

Two 2" layers with filling between.

I didn'[t know any one made 4" deep pans !?!
Are you sure you don't mean 2"?
It is far easier to bake in 2" deep pans; bake 2 layers put together w/filling.
Some people torte (cut in 1/2) each of those 2" layers so there are 4 layers of cake w/three layers of filling.

Kakeladi,

Fat Daddios carries 4" deep cake pans; round and square. Here is the link.

Wow! I didn't like my 3" deep pans because I thought cakes baked funky.

Exactly.

Plus the larger layers took forever to bake......
