the deeper the pan the more problems one has baking in them icon_sad.gif
Bake two 2" cakes and stack them with filling between and you should be fine.

I usually bake with 3" pans. I just lower the temperature about 25 degrees and bake a little longer. Works great for me!

I prefer the 3" pans, I too bake at 325, and for about an hour... it takes longer, but I love the end results!

I also prefer my 3" pans to the 2" ones - for some reason they seem to bake up more evenly and require less hump control...

I have only use the 2 in pans as I have never attempted a 3 in pan but I don't have problems with the humps. I most of the time use a thin layer of frosting between the layers and frost and decorate as usual.

So do you just bake 1 cake per layer in your 3" pans or do you still do 2 cakes, fill and stack?

Didn't your momma ever tell you there are no dumb questions??? LOL

Every oven/temp is different.... sure they work, or they would not be on the market. I use 2" myself. But, those will more than likely take longer to bake and I would lower the temp a bit.

lol...ok so I must need more coffee because that makes me giggle....I'm going to try and work "hump control" into a random convo today and see the strange looks I get!

As for the op's question, do you torte and fill your cakes? This will give you more height because there is more filling.
