I am getting more and more confused, looking at the charts and try to figure out how many cups of Icing and Filling I will need for 10" round cake.
If I bake the pan twice and each cake cut once, I will get 4" 3 layer, right? So are the charts per layer, or per cake??? How many cups??? Please help me with this. The icing and filling are the same - Cream cheese
10" round

If you bake two 2" layers (for a layer cake) and cut (tort) each layer, you will have four smaller layers with either three layers of filling/frosting between them. (Plus you'll need frosting for the top/sides of the cake.)

Here's a link to Wilton's cake making help:
(Everything from how much batter needed to fill the pans, to torting and filling. Also gives frosting requirements by pan sizes for frosting & decorating.)

For help on determining how many cups of frosting are needed for filling, refer to sleeved pastry usage chart:
(Substitute frosting for sleeved filling.)
