I normally use 2 inch round pans when baking (8x2, 9X2, etc) but I recently had to use my 3 inch round pans since the 2 inch ones were being used. The cake came out higher than what I wanted. How do you use 3 inch pans without having two huge cakes that you have to fill and stack which will make a monster cake like I had?
Hi, all my tins are 3" tall. Before I torte the cake, I cut a thin layer from the topof the cake to level it. I torte the cake twice and do two fillings. Example - Cake - filling - Cake - filling - Cake. When everything is done, the cake is 3" or a bit more taller.
Thanks, I have not been torting the cakes at all, just putting them together with an inch of icing, I knew there had to be a better way!
I put a dam around the egde of each layer and fill it with the filling, but not to the top, just slight below the dam.
