Hi !

I have a kind of " dumb" question that I'm sure quite a few people are going to go, " Huh"??? (LOL)

But, when you bake a large cake, be it a sheet cake, or large tier on a wedding cake...how do you fill them? I've never filled a large cake. I did try once, just playing... and I split the cake just fine, but when I took off the top layer, it fell into a million pieces. Do you bake 2 thin layers, fill and then frost?? Just would like to hear how you do it!!

Thanks!!

I slide mine onto a really big flat cookie sheet, but a rectangular cakeboard or piece of cardboard also works great! It also makes it easy to slide back on.
And I don't think there are any dumb questions here...I have asked dozens of questions and everyone is always kind about replying!

I do mine the same way - just using a lage cake round - usually whatever Im using to put the completed cake on .... shimmy it on - shimmy it off ... Kinda sounds like a Richard Simmons Video huh?! icon_wink.gif

when I do a two layer sheet cake I actually bake two layers. I then fill it with the large flat tip that you use to frost your cake and a 16" bag and flip my other layer onto it. but, i also use a board or cookie sheet to flip it so it doesn't crack
