A layer is typically 2" tall. Two 2" layers make a layer cake or a tier.

This is helpful chart for industry standard layers:

I bake two pans for each tier. Example: two 8" rounds which I then level each to 2" high, then tort (make a horizontal cut through the middle) so that I end up with four 1" rounds. I then fill between each layer so that I have four layers of cake and three layers of filling. This gives me a 4 1/2-5" tall tier, depending on how much filling I use. Before I bought my awesome Agbay Deluxe leveler I didn't tort my layers so I had two layers of cake with one layer of filling in between. The Agbay has two blades so it levels and torts with just one cut.
