I would wrap the bottom in foil. I've had springform pans leak (before I got a better quality one).

If your cake batter is thick enough, it should be ok, but things cooked in springform pans usually have some sort of crust at the bottom.

(I tried this once, and it leaked, but it was a $3 Walmart pan, so I think that was the problem)

Yeah, the main problem is, it might leak. You could try lining it with foil or parchment. Or bake the 3rd one after the first 2.

Put a sheet pan on the bottom rack just in case!

I literally use a springform pan for everything. I didn't know it wasn't common practice. Mine never leak.

Yes, I also use springform pans for layer cakes all the time! I usually place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Just to be safe.
