I often bake two 8 or 9 inch layers and ice and decorate each layer. Usually I make one for a dinner and freeze the other for another time. That way you still have a larger top surface to decorate. When I do this I will sometimes torte them so they have a bigger awe factor. It is handy to have one in the freezer for a short notice treat to bring.
