It's impossible to spread 3-4 tbsp of sticky or any batter into 9x12 rectangle. There must be some mistake. I had to double recipe to get 4 layers about 8/9x12" each, they did rise and looked good. I will try to post a picture later. They stick to the parchment paper badly. To remove paper without ruining your cake, you need to use damp kitchen towel. Put your cake paper side down on the damp towel, let it rest for a minute, then turn it over and carefully remove paper. And just so you know, this is not an alternative to Medovik (Russian honey cake). It's not the same. It's very very chewy, rubber like, it was impossible to make crumbs out of this. The layers soaked up all filling, and I did use a lot, but the cake was extremely dry anyways. I made hundreds of honey cakes in my life (my Mom's favorite:o)) (with water bath or melting honey with soda until foamy and brownish, there are many techniques), this is the first one I threw away. I will stick to my old recipes, 3 tbsp honey is enough to make yummy layered honey cake. I will not be making this again.
