Can someone explain to me why it is, that when you bake 2 cakes in the same pan for both, when you go to layer them, they never line up exactly?  Is there a way of layering them so that they are even? I don't want to trim  all around the sides, for fear that I will make it worse. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Are you levelling your cakes before you layer them?  If you don't level then any doming of the cakes will make them look like they are not lined up properly.

Yes, I always level them first.. Its almost as if the cakes were not the same size. I use ame cake pan and same recipe. Weird.
