Can I bake 2 cakes in the oven at the same time? Will it affect temperature?

I have one cake on the top shelf and one on the bottom, both of the same
size and same mixture. It's a fan-forced oven heated to 160C or 320F and
the recipe recommends I cook for 45-50mins. Does having 2 cakes in the
oven make a difference? Will I need to adjust cooking time or
temperature. Will I need to rotate the cakes?

It is a good idea to stagger the placement of the pans so that one is not blocking the heat flow to the other. Rotating two pans also helps to make a uniform product, as all home ovens have uneven heat distribution.
