This has me stumped and would love to hear from some of the professional bakers on this.

I am a bit confused and would like clarrification on what is advertised as a two layer cake. I see on websites advertising for a two layer 9" round (for example). Is this a 9" x 2" round cake that has been torted OR 2 - 9"x2" round cakes stacked?

Thanks and sorry for the dumb question. I just wanted a clear understanding what this means in the professional baking world.

Thanks again!

I consider it a 4" tall cake which would be two 9" cakes that are 2" tall. I would just call the other one a sheet cake (although i don't fill these, but some people do)

That's two, 9 X 2" tall cakes stacked to create the standard 4" tall tier.
