I'm attempting to do a cake that is in one of the Wilton Yearbooks, and it is using the petal pan set that is 2" deep, yet is calling for it to be 3". How the heck am I suppose to do that? Any suggestions would help! Thanks!

I'm not sure. Is there any way to post a picture?

You can collar the pan/s:

JanH, I thought of that, but how to do that with a petal pan? Anyways, I found a pic of the cake I'd like to make...

Well, you could torte them and just not use one layer. Or, you could make it a 4" tall cake and it will look just fine.

I'd personally do the latter.

Sorry, saw petal but was brain was thinking "paisley" - you're right it would be difficult to collar a petal. icon_redface.gif

Think I'd go with two 2" layers as has been suggested. icon_smile.gif

Very pretty cake design. thumbs_up.gif

Have you measured the pan's depth? I wouldn't be surprised if that "2-inch" pan was actually shorter than that! Or, the 3" depth measurement listed in the yearbook could be a typo. I'd go with what the others said and do two layers. Even if it ends up being closer to 4" tall it will look beautiful.
