I am going to practise my fondant this weekend
and I wanted to do a two tier round
cake... I have lots of pans, but I am unsure about the
small top layer... Is it carved from an 8" or is there a tall round
pan I can buy?

Thank you!

How tall do you need? They make the regular 2"-tall pans in any diameter from 4" to 7". Put two of those together and you have the standard 4"-high tier. I just bought a couple of 4" pans the other day and the top tier of the cake I made with them was SO cute!

I went out to the cake store today and found a 6" round x 3" deep... It was exactly what I was looking for! But I am unsure of how much cake mix to fill it with?
How would I determine that? Thank you!

I have used the cake data chart from the Wilton site to determine the amount of batter I use in each pan. I have the page bookmarked so that I can always reference it. HTH
