Should I split the layers or just make another layer? The first layer I just baked is 1.5" tall. The cake has to have 4 layers of cake and 3 filling. So do I just split that or bake more layers?

Thanks for all your help!

How tall are you trying to make the layers of the cake? If you want them 1" each then you'll need to make more cakes and this one cake will only give you one layer. If you can have thinner layers then you can make that cake into two layers. It just depends on what you're trying to do at the end.

I'm anal about layer height and like to have my layers be a consistent 1" thickness so that 1.5" cake would give me 1 layer and some waste to save for cakeballs or just to eat with some tea at home. Then I'd bake some more and keep torting until I had 4 1" layers. But it all depends upon your preference.
