I'm making the 3 tier, square cake using the Wilton pans. I'm making a 2-layer cake on each tier. How do I stack the layers of the larger cakes without them crumbling? I can't support the whole cake while trying to stack the layer because it's too big. Any help is appreciated.

use a support board under the layer when positioning, you just kind of hold the layer above the other one and shimmy it off the board.

When you are stacking you can put your dowel rods or sticks only halfway into the cake and then put the layer on top and let it slowly go down inside the cake, that way your fingers don't get in the icing as your stacking. It really works, just make sure all your dowels are the same size.

good luck!
