omg i know this has to be the stupidest question ever asked in all of cake central history but i completely forget what side your supposed to do the filling on
meaning you have the baked layer right, and then you level it,so when your making a two layer cake for example,does the leveled side lay against the cardboard or is it the other way around?[leveled side would be the side that comes out the top of the pan]
ive been searching but i cant seem to find this in the threads and even though ive made cakes before,i cant seem to remember what i did for them! icon_redface.gif
i feel horrible asking this but i really want to get a start on filling my cakes[just regular bc]but i dont want to screw this up
please someone enlighten me!
thanks so much in advance!

Not a silly question at all!
I usually put my fillings on the side that I layered (cut off) . The side that was at the bottom of the cake pan is the one I put on the cake boarc.
Make sense?

I put the bottom of the cake on the board (the leveled side up), add the filling and then for the top, I put the leveled side down and the bottom facing up. Hope this makes sense.

Same as what everyone else said. The sides you leveled face each other (are in the middle) and "house" the filling. The part of the cake that was touching the bottom of the pan will be the smoothest and will not require leveling so will be best for the base and the top of the cake.
