Not sure how to word this...but here goes...when baking tier cakes; and to get a decent height between tiers, how many layers are sandwiched together using a filling or frosting, and using 2 inch pans).

as an example 14-10-8-2 pan size..

Thanks

I use four 7/8" layers per tier. That give three layers of filling. A lot of people use two, 2" layers of cake plus one layer of filling to make a tier.

Tiers, generally speaking are 4" tall.

I usually bake 3-8" layers from one batch of my vanilla cake recipe. After trimming, they are about 1 1/2" each, so stacked with 2 layers of filling, the cake tier is about 5 inches thick. I like higher tiers, and I don't have a good leveler yet, so the 3 pans work best for me right now, no matter what the pan diameter. HTH icon_smile.gif
