Bake and cool cake, using two pans of the same size. Place bottom layer of cake on serving tray. Cut both layers perfectly level with cake slicer. Squeeze filling on the cake layer and spread evenly with a bent spatula, leaving 1/2" all the way around the edge of the cake (so pastry filling does not squirt out when layers are put together). Place top layer on top of filling. Ice cake with buttercream or rolled icing.
