I have a question about the recipe "American Flag Cake" from Erin McDowell. I've wanted to make this gorgeous cake since the recipe was first published in 2014, and this is the year I'm going to do so. In the instructions, could you please clarify item #6 vis a vis the comments from Coffecat (11 months ago) and Harry (almost 2 years ago) about the number of layers? My understanding is that if you slice the 2 white and 2 red layers in half, then you'd have 8 layers total, but are only using 6 layers for the cake, so would then have 2 layers of unused cake left over? Is that correct? Thanks!
