Has anyone ever made one of these? Where the layers are super thin?? Do you just cook thin layers, or do you cook thinner layers and torte?? I have had them before, but would like to try to make one. Any help will be appreciated.

Another way is to bake 'regular' 2" layers and use a super good cake saw to torte them into 4-6 layers.

It kinda looks like what we call a Doberge Cake down here (in and around New Orleans). I think I saw on Sugarshack's blog she did one with some shortcuts.
