I had planned on making a 6x2 and a 10x2 cake with both having 2 layers for a total of 4". But my pans are 6x3, 10x3. What will happen if I just put the amount of batter in it to make a 2"? Or else my tiers would be like almost 6" tall right? (I use the bake even strips but still torte a little and am doing pineapple filling between the 2 layers.

why not bake as per usual and then trim off to the height you want. Use the leftover cake to make cake balls / truffles. This way you don't have to decipher how much batter you'll need to get to the desired height. HTH
