just put one on top of the other and fill in between the the two cakes,i have to make 2-12" cakes for a family member as a surprise, or is it better to torte and fill. or is it just preferance??? any help would be appreiated thank you
12 in seems pretty large to have to torte....unless you cakes are 4 in tall, id just fill and stack them! I like to have a nice ratio between cake and filling...
Just preference. Personally, I think cutting into 4 layers of cake with 3 layers of filling is prettier.
thanks guys, the pans are 2" would than be to much filling
depends on how tall the cakes turn out...I would bake 3 layers if using 2" high pans, the cake most likely won't be a full 2 in tall...I agree kory...3 layers does look pretty...
would that make the cake about 8" high? after filling the layers
How much filling are you going to put in? A mousse might get as high as 1/2" per layer but jams should be pretty darn thin.
im using strawberry filling i just dont no weather to torte 2 layers or just make 4- 12" cakes and just fill and stack witch way is best
I used 2 12" cakes for the bottom tier of my daughters cake and I didnt torte them i just stuck them on top of each other after I leveled them out and the size was just perfect and used raspberry jam for the filling that was the most requested cake LOL
thanks FancyPantsBaker i think thas what im going to do.one question how many people do u think that would feed?
for small portions like wedding cake size it says 52 servings but I cut pretty decent sizes, you could get 52 pieces out of it but if your cutting hefty pieces count on more like 40ish
thanks again Fancy, for being there
no problem good luck on your cake Im sure everyone will love it
