Just wondering what everyone else likes. So far all I have are 3", but am pondering getting some 2".

I prefer 2". 3" cakepans are supposed to be torted twice to get 3 layers and that should be your entire cake layer. I think it's easier to hit the 4" standard height with baking and torting 2-2" layers.

I like the 2" pans, too. It's easier to level them off to 2" if you use the pan as a guide.

2" because I add filling in between each layer and it's already too tall as it is (but I use that as a selling point). The 3" is just too much cake and throws off my servings and pricing...because the tiers end up being much taller with the filling.

ok, I am the odd ball... icon_lol.gif I love the 3" pans. I fill them with batter only slightly more than you would a 2" pan. It bakes more evenly and no humps.. My pans are Magic Line, and I bake mostly scratch.. As they say.... different strokes.. icon_lol.gif

i prefer the 3" cause it seems i get more close to the 2" that i need after torting. when i use the 2" pans, i'm afraid to overfill and end up not putting enough batter. any tips on that would be awesome, cause also have several 2". TIA
