What is a Layer Cake? No it’s not a wedding cake or a unicorn one either. When talking about fabric it’s a collection of fabrics cut into 10″ squares. They are usually sold in packs that include one of every fabric in a collection, or a group of coordinating fabrics. You may also see them called 10″ Stackers or Patty Cakes.
