WHen you are doing 2 layers what inch size pans do you use most often?

I am lost I have no idea what to use. I have been using the 3 inch pans, ((which end up being around 5 inches high)) but then I think it maybe too high, but then for some reason the 2 in pans stacked ((4inches)) seem like not high enough.

What do you use more often?????

2 inch pans...baked to the top. I don't torte, I fill in between the two cakes. Ends up being 4 inches to 4 1/2 inches tall.

I use the 3 inches at home and don't fill them as much so I don't loose so much cake. But at work we use a lot of the 2 inch. When you layer and add fillings and buttercream, they go easily to 4 inches, as long as you fill the pan well enough and the cake raises properly.

Much prefer using 2" deep pans and baking 2 layers for a cake that is 4" tall.
I agree w/Jamie.....usually don't torte, just use one filling between the 2 layers.

2" pans, always torted so that each tier has four layers of cake and three layers of filling. I hated my 3" pans so much I gave them away.
