I am going to make 11x15, two layer cake. It is going to be 4" high.
I have never stack this big sheet size cake before.
How do you stack the sheet cake without any mess?
Are there any tricks or techniques?
THANKS. icon_redface.gif

Level the cakes before stacking (just like any other cake layers).

Refrigerating or partially freezing will firm up the layers (helps with stability).

Use a cakeboard, cookie sheet, etc.to slide one layer onto the other.

Just make sure that you have a good Stiff dam for your filling, and use a sideless cookie sheet dusted with powdered sugar to slide the top cake on to the bottom layer. I have found it helpful to have the cake really cold so that it is firm and easier to handle. icon_smile.gif

Hope that helps! icon_smile.gif

Hello JanH,

I didn't think about freeze the cake or cold cake.
If I put frozen cake on the top of the frosting, doesn't cake sweat and make the frosting wet?
Thanks.

I saw a cake paddle like a pizza slider or a giant cookie spatula. Can't find it now... gosh I am just a tease. Sorry.

Doing what JanH said should work like a dream.

OOOOO I found it aren't you impressed with me...? It's a Deluxe Stainless Steel Cake Lifter. Because we all need more gadgets right? Any-who here's the link for a looky-loo...
