Is it easier to decorate a layered cake or to bake with a deeper pan and get a taller cake that is all one layer?

Megan - from Corbin, KY

There isn't much of a difference between decorating a single layer or multiple layer cake. The difference will be while you bake the cakes.

It is going to be more difficult to bake a thick layer without the outside edges burning. I would recommend making a layered cake because you can fill with with icing and you will have more success when baking.
