- Forum: How Do I?
Lots of people do this differently. I personally bake 2" high cakes in 3" pans. I then torte these to 1". My tiers are 4 - 1" layers. Some people will stack 2-2" layers. To me, that's too much cake to frosting ratio. Others will bake 3" cakes and torte and level those. What ratio of cake to frosting do you like? What tier height do you like?
