I need to purchase some pans, which is most typical for wedding cakes
4" or 6" high? When I looked at some pictures, it seams to me they are higher than 4" (layers). Thanks a lot.
typically they are 4"
agree .... 4"
Now, if I have 3" high 10" round cake, and want to bake it to 2" high. What will be better: to follow 3" pan instruction and level to 2", or follow 2" pan instruction (put less batter to 3"pan). Will that cake bake correctly? I hate leftovers..
I would follow the 2" pan intructions and put less batter in... it will still rise nicely.
I agree that you should just fill it so that it will be 2".
I have seen some taller cakes also, but a lot of times it's a specialty cake...like thin layers of sponge cake with layers of ganache in between or stuff like that that someone decided to stack to the moon lol. But a regular white/yellow/chocolate, etc wedding cake is typically 4".
i'm pretty sure mine was about 3 inches high. check my pics i think it's the first one. i just used regular pans and did 2 layers each tier
Our cakes are typically 2 inch pans and we fill them so they bake over the top and can be leveled quickly and easily. Once they are filled and iced, they are about 5 or so inches tall.
thank you everyone for your help, and comments...I will follow the instr.for 2" and bake in 3" pan, I just was not sure. This CC is great place, when I need you, you are there...thanks
At work we do 4" high tiers using 3 unsplit layers. That is the standard I do at home now too.
