What do you think looks better? Four layers of cake with three thinner layers of filling or three layers of cake with two thicker layers of filling? I do two layers of cake and one of filling now but I feel that more layers will look nicer and it will give my business an edge. Thoughts?

I'm in the other boat - 1 filling between 2 layers of cake.  My reasoning is it makes for a more stable cake for transporting - less chance of the layers slipping apart.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.   LOL!

I was doing 2 layers with 1 filling, but I got to noticing most around here do 3 layers with 2 fillings so I decided to do the same.

This thread just goes to show, there is no right or wrong, or "how does everybody else do it", play around a little and see what you are comfortable with.

To those that do three layers of cake and two of filling, how much cake and filling to you use to get a full 4 inches. Do you cake three separate layers?
