Hi...went to a restaurant supply store today & they had the coolest cake pans. I was wondering which thickness would be best for a stacked cake.
3" or 2" .....if I wanted to do a wedding style cake, would I bake 2 of the 3" widths and put filling in between or torte each cake?? or bake 2 of the 2" cakes and fill in between cakes. any ideas? thanks-Gina

Usually people either torte (in half or in thirds) & fill a 3" pan and ice it (this will give you 2 or 3 layers)

OR use two 2" pans and just put filling between the two (this will give you 2 layers)

OR use two 2" pans and torte and fill each one, pull filling in between, then ice the whole thing. (this will give you 4 layers)

It all depends on what you feel like doing. Personally, I just use two 2" pans and just fill between the 2 of them.

Hope that wasn't confusing. lol HTH
