Use a 6" round, 2" deep pan and bake two layers to make a 4 inch high cake. I would probably torte the layers as well which means slice the cakes in half horizontally and add filling between each layer. If you want the cake to look higher then you could use a 1/2" foam core cake drum in place of a cardboard circle. Hope that helps!
