I have seen many post saying "torte the cake" what does this mean? How many layers do you put in? how thick should each layer be? I know it is probably a dumb question but I am very new at this.
Thanks so much.

torting just simply means cutting the cake into layers. When I torte my cakes here's what I do:
I bake each layer 2" high, and cut it into 2-1" high layers, repeat with the second 2" layer that is cut into 2-1" layers and put filling/frosting between. In the end, I end up with a cake that has 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling and is roughly 4" tall, maybe a little bit taller. Some people bake 3" layers and cut the in half or thirds, it really depends on your preference.
