This may seem a bit basic, but had to ask. I was originally planing 3inch layers, but now I am going to have 4" since my cakes didn't bake up high enough. So, when you fill your cakes, do you put the filling between the 2 inch layers (and no BC), or do you cut the 2 inch layers apart to fill, and get it to 4" with BC? I am voting for the first option, because I want to keep this simple, but just wasn't too sure how it is done...
Thanks for all your help! I have learned so much from this site already!
I put a buttercream "dam" around the edge of each layer with a a big round tip (or sometimes just the screwy thingy) and then spoon the filling in, smooth with the bent spatula. Quick and easy
I usually leave the 2" layers intact and put buttercream and/or filling between them. I haven't ever had any complaints.
