No you don't need to freeze it before stacking it. What filling did you use.

I'm not sure if I can define torting well -- but in my words, it is cutting layers of cake where you will add filling.

Hi and Congrats on your 1st post, deelovlie1. icon_smile.gif

Everything you need to know to make, decorate and assemble tiered/stacked/layer cakes:

A firm frosting dam helps keep the filling in place. But I've found the sleeved pastry filling usage charts very helpful in determining "how much" filling is enough without asking for problems... This info can be found in the above super thread, along with indydebi's thread on pastry filling usage amounts.

Torting is splitting a cake layer into two or more smaller layers (for peeps who love MORE filling). Otherwise two (intact) cake layers are sandwiched together (with filling or frosting) per tier. (See Wilton cake decorating links above for more detailed info.)
