on your cakes if you only need a one layer cake? I'm making an open book cake and have seen similar cakes that are really high. Thanks

I cut/torte my single layers and by the time I ice the middle and the entire cake it ends up being about 4 inches high.

I do this also. But, you could also put it on top of a sheet layer, then cut the edges off the bottom layer to be the same size.

You can also use foamcore board cut out instead of cardboard under your cake. It comes up to a half inch thick so it can make you cakes a half inch taller. you can find it with the poster supplies at craft stores.

sorry I didn't know I had replies. Haven't been getting any notifications. All of those suggestions are great and will steer me in the right direction. thanks. Whenever people look at a cake pic it seems much larger than the actual cake. Has anyone else noticed this?
