i was planning to use the measurement listed at the end of the cake bible to figure out my measurements for a 10 inch chocolate butter cake but this got me thinking that the last time i did this i dint get much rise on my cake. i like my cakes a little on the taller side cause i torte them both into half to get three layers of filling. So if i wanted them to be taller , how much extra should i make ?

I am not sure what percentage you should use to get a higher cakje, but check the errata on the main blog for this as there are notes Re: the cake.  The errata, however, does mention making a different height

That depends on how high you want your cake. Cakes as tender as Rose’s don’t have the strength to get too high, but you can experiment. Take whatever recipe you’re using and boost all the ingredients by some percentage, such as 20% and see what happens. I haven’t seen much higher than 1 1/4 inches for her chocolate cake recipes, but I don’t know if that’s the highest she could get or she was rounding to the nearest whole egg. If you’re OK using fractional eggs, you can scale very minutely.
