I always torte my cakes but I really want to learn how to make 4 layer with icing between each. I'm not sure if this is one cake or many cakes? And how tall is each cake baked?

Any info would be greatly appreciated icon_biggrin.gif

i bake two 2" cakes and then level and torte then so my layers are 1-7/8" tall each, i put filling between each layer and once iced they're pretty close to 4" tall.

I baked 2 - 8" round cakes - torte each layer - and had filling inbetween each icon_smile.gif

So I'm confused why you torte if your not filling them and stacking? What are you making exactly just one 2" and then torting that so you have a 2 layer cake with one layer filling??

lol icon_wink.gif I am filling and stacking
4 layers of cake - 3 layers of filling icon_smile.gif
I am baking a cake (one mix) in two 2"x8" pans - then torting the two cakes I baked - making it 4 layers.

I'm not baking 4 cakes - just one cake mix - cutting the 2 layers I made in half to make 4 icon_smile.gif
