Here is what i am trying to figure out... I am a newbie so please bear with me.
I would like to know each of your opinions or what you prefer to do. Example:
You bake two 9 inch cakes, now will you divide them both in half and fill them or would you just fill the two 9 inch cakes together?
All of your help is much appreciated
Depends on what kind of cake I am making, what I feel like doing that day, and if I have 1 or two fillings.
For example, sometimes I do a lemon cake and I torte the layers, fill them with raspberry jam, then fill between the 2 layers with lemon curd and ice with either lemon or raspberry buttercream.
Agreed. It's just a matter of preference. I didn't torte and fill each layer until just recently. I think it's nice to give people a little more taste of the filling. I can't remember who told me on her but they torte the layers in 4 then fill filling, icing, filling icing... that way if it's a wedding cut, the person that gets and inside piece (not an edge) still gets a decent amount of icing too.
I was torting and filling, but switched to just filling between the 2 cakes because it was way to sweet for my tastes! Definitely a matter of preference...
