Bake at 350* for 32 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool cake in pans on wire racks 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Wrap and chill cake layers at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.(This step enables you to split cake layers with ease).
Using a serrated knife, slice cake layers in half horizontally to make 4 layers. Place 1 layer,cut side up, on a cake plate. Spread with 1/2 cup cream cheese frosting; sprinkle with 1/4 of chopped cheesecake bites. Repeat procedure with remaining 3 layers, frosting, and cheesecake bites, omitting cheesecake bites on top of last layer. Frost sides and top of cake with remaining frosting.
