Hi...I'm baking a Hello Kitty cake for my daughter.
I'm using a 8" round cake pan with 3" heighth. Should I bake two of these cakes, to get the right heighth, or is just one pan good enough after decorating with icing. I do want it to have a nice heighth, but not sure if one would be enough, Thanks-Gina
i'd make two! people love when stuff is inside
I would probably make two. But if you want to just make the one definently torte and fill and that will add to the height
People make cakes of all different heights. But I would say 4" or so is the "standard" cake height you see. So if that's what you're going for, bake two cakes in the 8" x3" pan. But only use enough batter each time to give you 2" of flat cake, below any dome that you'd trim. Then, when you stack them with filling, you'll get 4" of height.
