Hello all! I'm just wondering how many layers of filling most of you put in your cakes. I'm making a three-tier baby shower cake this week. I was going to torte it twice, therefore having two layers of filling per cake. I'm using chocolate buttercream as filling. Do you think that it will hold up okay or should I just do one layer of filling per cake? The cakes are 3" high so I think it probably needs the two layers. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!!

Hi,

I torte each layer (2 layers) in each tier, so I end up with 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling in each tier (4 - 4 1/2" tall finished tier.)

I do it just like Deb does. I've done a cake with 1 layer of filling and a cake with 6 (or 7) layers of filling.

Sometimes I end up with 4 layers and 3 fillings. And sometimes I just do three layers and 2 fillings. Just depends on my mood. =o) I like the cakes to be 4" though.

Three layers of cake with two layers of filling.
