Short layer cake

laurendlewis | Jul 26, 2007 02:12 PM

I am planning on making a layer cake for a friend's bday - chocolate cake with strawberry jam filling and vanilla buttercream. I'm not a very good froster but I think taste will more than make up for it!

The problem is that I made a classic chocolate cake in 2 9" rounds. But the layers are so skinny! Should I make another batch and make it a 4 layer cake? Will I have to make twice as much frosting?? (I've already made 2 layers of cake and a delicious batch of buttercream)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
