I doctor cake mixes for all my cakes and price per serving. My question is, when the serving chart says 2 layers in a 2" pan. Am I needing to bake two cakes in that pan to be two layers or am I baking one cake in the pan and splitting it to be two layers. I want my cakes to look full and tall but I am not sure what the standard height is or if I am giving enough cake. I have just been splitting it. Does this make sense?
2 layers means 2 cakes bakes in the pan. I have at least 2 pans of each size so I can bake them at the same time. The standard height for a tier is 4 inches so 2- 2 inch cakes stacked. When you slice a layer it is called torting. On wedding cakes, I tort each layer so a tier is cake, filling, cake, filling cake filling, cake.
thanks so much. I almost just ripped off all my upcoming clients. I am new, can you tell? I will make note of this nad never make that mistake again. So 4 inches tall per cake. That's a lot of cake.
This is for a layer or tiered cake, not a sheet cake. Those are usually only one 2" layer. But you prolly knew that already. LOL
So 4 inches tall per cake. That's a lot of cake.
It's a normal 2-layer cake.
