Here's a sleeved pastry filling usage chart by cake sizes:
(So you can compare how much they recommend and you actually use.)

If you want MORE filling then torte your cake layers. Or if you already torte - torte them into MORE layers until you have as many layers of filling as you desire in proportion to the layers of cake.

It's easy to have at least 3 layers of filling in a 2 layer cake (torte each layer in half and also use filling between the layers instead of using frosting). Some members have 5-7 layers of filling in a 2 layer cake (just torte each layer two or three times).
