Silly question:

Do you guys stick to just baking one size either 3" OR 4" inches high on the cakes or do you ask your customers...give the option?

Or does it depend on the type of Pan they want, meaning the Paisley Pan
looks better on 4" high.

I'm no expert, but after reading many posts I think it depends on what type of pans you have, whether the cake will be torted or not, whether they want the cakes to look 6" high or just have them boosted with foam core. There are a lot of variables. But remember, the more options you give the more work you will end up doing. That is the ONE thing I absolutely know for sure. HTH

No, I never ask the customer. A sheet cake is "single layer" and non-sheet cakes are "2-layer". No one has ever asked me how high those are in inches.

single layer is "about" 2". 2-layer is "about" 3 to 4 inches.

2-layer costs more than single layer.
