If cut/torte my 11 x 15 cake by the time I ice the middle and the entire cake , will it ends up being about 4 inches high. Or do I need to do two sheets and ice between the two?

When I made my 11X15 it did not raise all the way to the top so once I was done leveling it (1 layer it was about an 1 1/2") the 2 together gave me almost a 4" once it was filled and frosted.

I made a 9x13x2 last week. Did not torte it. Haven't posted it yet. There was a horse scene on top. I made the fence out of fondant and candy clay mixture. It looked really nice with this size cake. So , you, torting and filling and icing,etc. will make your cake about 3" tall or so. I have measured before when i torted and filled and iced,etc. Your cake should look really nice too.tht

I made one two weeks ago and it only came about a little higher than 2" and that was using 2 box mixes.

I made another one a few days after using the WASC recipe (which I doubled) and it worked out perfectly! Even the top was flat enough that I didn't need to level it! It did rise a little above the edge of the pan but it was perfect. I filled it and I think it was about 5" high.

use a 1/4 sheet cake board (I think they're like 10"x14") and cut your cake and then slide this board under the top layer, then when it's time to put it back on, just jiggle the cake board allowing the cake to begin to slide back off the end of the board back into place on the bottom layer.
