I make cream cheese / chocolate chip filled cupcakes for my sons class all the time. My questions is this:
Can I make a cake with the same filling.

Would I do the same as with the cupcakes?
Fill the pan a little less than half way - add the cream cheese / chocolate chip filling and then add the rest of the batter on top and bake.

I was thinking maybe I should just add "drops" of the filling since if I
add a think layer it may not bake properly.

Would this work - adding just drops so the cake batter would hold the filling and cake together? Does this make sense.
I don't really have time to just experiment.

I'm no expert, but I didn't want to be the 22nd person to read your question and not answer. I would think that if it works in cupcakes, it should work in a layer as well. I see no reason why it wouldn't.

Or make the cakes normally and when you layer tham use the yummy stuff as the filling.

The filling is cream cheese, sugar, one egg and chocolate chips.
You have to bake it then it tastes awesome.

I've done it with what sounds like the same filling. I baked it in a bundt pan, and it turned out great. It was impressive to cut into the cake and see the cream cheese/chocolate chip filling.

8 oz of cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar hand mixed till smooth.
Beat in one egg until smooth. Add 1 cup of chocolate chips until well blended. It's really good. Every one raves about it.

Keeping my fingers crossed that it works inside a cake - will find out tonight. : )
