This is where the magic starts to happen!

Now that you know all about the different types of cakes, it’s time we talk about how to bake in some pizzazz! You know, by making them into layers and making a layered cake.

What is a layered cake? Well, basically you’re making multiple cakes and then stacking them one on top of the other with frosting in between. The end result is a single mega ultra king cake, better known as a layered cake.

How do you make one?

Select a cake recipe that sounds yummy to you, just like you normally would. Then, after you make the batter, just divide it between more than one cake pan. And the number of pans you divide the batter into is the number of layers that your finished cake will have. However, this number will effect the time it takes to bake all your layers.

For example, imagine you’re taking a carrot cake recipe.

You find a delicious recipe and divide the batter into three pans. This way you’ll have a three layered cake. So far, so good. Now let’s introduce some conflict- duh, dun, done! 🎵 Let’s say that the original recipe was for a two layer cake and the listed bake time was 40 minutes. Because you altered the recipe when you divided the batter into thinner layers than the recipe expected, you now need to reduce that bake time. If you use the same bake time listed on the recipe, you’ll likely overbake your cake layers.

Why? Well, aren’t you just full of questions today! The thicker the cake, the slower the heat of the oven can cook it all the way. Basically, your making your oven work harder. On the other hand, if they’re thinner, the heat can bake your cake quicker.

Ta da!🎩🎉 Thank you, thank you. I’m here all week.

Now, if you thought that was good advice, then you are in for a treat!

Unlike a normal lesson, I’m not going to spend very much time hanging out with you here.

Instead, I’m going to redirect you to the two topics that focus exclusively on teaching you how to make a baller layered cake. One of them is all about dividing your batter into perfectly even layers and how to bake them in the oven: AKA the pre-oven topic. And the other focuses on how to prep your individual cakes and assemble a layered cake: ie the post-oven topic.

So, if any of that sounds like it’d be interesting to you, then go ahead and check out those topics right now! Yes, right now!

Welcome back! I hope you learned something new.

But, more importantly, I hope you still have your curiosity- because it’s time to move on to our next lesson!

Now I don’t want to give away the surprise, but I am willing to give you a hint. If I said, “Honey, I shrunk the kids,” does that give you a clue? We’re going small in our next chapter. (Have you figured it out yet?)

So just hit the Next Lesson button already to find out what I’m being so cryptic about. (Go on, do it. I dare you!)
