I just took the cake out of the oven a little while ago. Now I need to cut 6, 4" circles using a round cutter that I bought last week. Do I wait until the cake is totally cooled down, should I freeze before cutting? I'm so worried I'll just have cake globs, insted of the clean cylindars, which I still will have to cut in half to get the 12 I need for my little Japanese hand drum mini cakes!!!! Please, please share your tips to do this successfully.
It might be harder to push the cutters thru fzn cake but in the long run I think that would be best - less crumbs; less chance of it breaking. Maybe fz just an hr or so till it's *very* cold but not fzn hard.
Thank you so much! I just get these ideas, but do not have the experience yet to get em done. I could not find any straight sided, mini, multi rounds pans at the cake supply store. Of course they had square ones, LOL!
Thanks again kakeladi! I just took the cake out of the freezer and it cut perfetly. I put those puppies back in when I was done so they will be easy to handle when I cover them with fondant!
