  • one cake mix, a can of frosting (or recipes for cake and frosting), 2 round pans probably 8" across, Cake mix has ingredients on it. You usually spray the pan & put a little flour on it, pour in the mix about 1/2 full in each of the 2 pans. Can cook one, let i cool while you cook the other if you have only one round pan. Let them cool down. Put a bit of icing on the top of the bottom cake. (if cake is not straight across can turn it upside down or can slice off top with a string so it is level on top. ) & spread it over so the top cake will stick on it. Some will put a piped on edge around the edge and fill in the middle with peach jam or raspberry jam or something like that if you like that. I usually just use a buttercream type icing or something from the can. Place the top cake directly over bottom layer and then ice up the sides all around and then ice the top with the last of icing. Takes more to decorate.

  • You need two cake pans. You will want one slightly larger then the tier you put on the top. Bake them both, cool completely. Then frost and make sure you have plenty of frosting or filling between layers in order to insure it sticks.

  • the above answers will make a two LAYER cake. is that what you want? Or do you want a Tiered cake( Like a wedding cake). those are tiers. A cardboard cut out and dowel rods are used to help support the toop tier.
