How many layers do you normally have in a standard 4 inch wedding cake? Two 2" with icing in between, three 1 and a bit inch layers?

Thanks.

I just do cakes for family and friends, but I perfer to do my cakes with 4 layers of cake and three layers of filling. Usually my cakes are layer of cake - filling - layer of cake - icing - layer of cake - filling - layer of cake.

I like having a bite of filling/icing with every piece of cake with out having to cut off big pieces. I also think it makes a pretty presentation.

It really depends. However, for a wedding, I like the well-torted look. I take each cake layer and split it to fill. So you have four layers of cake with three layers of filling, then frosted. If I had an AGBAY I'd crank out a few more layers from the same amount of cake.

Thanks a ton. I am making one cake with a raspberry filling, so maybe I'll try that. Do you just use 2" cake pans and then cut each cake in half?
