I use a lot of 3" deep pans, especially for sheet cakes. I think the 2" ones are too skimpy. My question is: has any of you ever stacked a 12 x 18 x3 on top of another one? With filling I guess it would make like a 6 1/2 in tall cake. Would the weight of the top one crush the bottom?

I've never done it, and was just wondering. Thanks

I haven't stacked a 3 inch 12 X 18 but I did stack a 2 inch 11 X 15. That is one BIG cake. It worked out just fine for me. I can't imagine the weight of the top layer being an issue since the weight would be equally distributed over the whole bottom layer.

Good luck!

Thanks, Kimmy. I guess it's trial and error when the time comes. What you said makes sense: duh, I should just stack the 2" ones.

I've done an 8 (or was it 9) inch tall cake with no support in beteween. I didn't really have any problems but I do advice you use support. Put dowels and a covered cardboard in between.
