how do you make very high layers of cake? for example i see some cakes which are very tall in the size. Are they baked and fixed in severel layers of 4 inches tins and put together or are they fixed over dummys or are they using very high tins to bake direktly. if its baking tins where can i get those high baking tins. can some one help me?
High cakes are usually several layers stacked to achieve the height that you need.
you can easily get 3" deep pans.
My cake layers tend to be around 5-6" tall each, I like a tall tier. Each cake is baked in a 2" high cake pan, and then torted (each 2" layer cut in half) I fill in between all the layers so that adds at least another inch in height sometimes 1-1/2 inches. Then I put the cake onto a 1/2" thick piece of foam core board and frost all the way around the side of the board and cake, so that adds another 1/2" of height.
thankyou, its a good idea. i will try like you. my pans are 3 inches high. that means when i have baked it is about 2 inches high. to have a cake of 6 inches i have to bake 3 times. and when i make the filling for each cake i will have again another half an inch and the board half and inch which comes up to one inch per cake. that means i am able to go up to 8 inches full when i have coverd with fondant. is it correct.? if so its wonderful.
Except that you may have to add support half way through your cake if you're stacking.
And remember, if it's a catering situation, cake is served on a 5" or 6" plate, not a dinner plate.
