So I see some bakeries offer three layer cakes. I do not mean grocery stores but cakeries and such. Do you think (or know) - are they baking these layers in 3 individual pans? Are they making them shorter than what we normally bake in the 2” pans? Just thinking on this subject in case I want to make some three layer cakes. (Also, thinking about this because I am trying to avoid work from my day job ....since it is not day anymore but I have work to do).
I myself like tall cakes. I always bake an extra 2 inch in case I need it. If i don’t need it, I can always give it to my neighbor. iMHO, short cakes look like pan cakes or hot cakes with icing. To me the taller the cake, the more professional it looks.
Thank you Flour Girl. I do not have Baked yet. I should remove the yet part as I am struggling to find space for for the cookbook I have decided to keep.
thank you Charles, I will be on the look out.
I am considering scaling the two layer recipes and baking in three pans. that will work fine for 8” and smaller in my oven.
I hope you get a chance to bake from the Baked cookbooks. There are three now and each have 3 layer cakes.

I will keep it on the list Flour Girl. But I have purchased 3 or 4 new cooks in the last 18 months and only baked one or two items from them all combined. hopefullu. Amazon lets you take a sneek peek. I really am no longer fond of books not providing the weight of all of the ingredients.
