I am attempting to make a two layer chocolate butter cake for my daughter’s birthday.  I want to use two 1/4 sheet pans (9” x 13” x 2”).

This is my first time trying to use the Rose Factor, and I think I got all the calculations correct, but now I am confused as to how much batter I actually need.  According to my calcualtions, the Chocolate Butter Cake Base Formula multiplied by a Rose Factor 4, I will have approximately 7 cups of batter.  I am almost certain that is only enough for one pan, but I want to be sure before I begin mixing two batches.  The reason I am confused is this: The Master Chart indicates that the pan sizes are “2 layers each 2 inches high”.  Does this mean that it is one cake pan, and that it is two layers because you torte the cake?

Sorry if this question has been asked and answered elsewhere.  I have tried searching for a while before posting, and could not find an answer. Thank you in advance to anyone who is able to help.
