What I did was to use disposable aluminum pans lined with parchment paper. You have to make soooo many layers in separate pans that's the easiest way I found to handle it. You'll get your multiple layers easily this way.

At any rate, good luck with conquering your cake.
The pans aren't a bad idea! Thanks for the post. Like I said, the lesson I learned is to not worry about volume of cake batter vs overall height in the pan...Also 9" layers requires more than one box of cake mix...

It's the official Maryland state dessert! It looks great, if you can make it right :)

Recipes say you can add powdered candy to the tops of each layer...Why not coconut? :D
