How do you place your cake on the cake board? I have a cake that I baked that I am gonna cut into 3 layers. I need to know if i do cut side down or just how it's done.

Thanks.

For me, it doesnt really matter as long as the top is the crumb free bottom side of the cake. Not sure if I said it right.

I just put a bit of buttercream on the plastic covered cake board and then stack the layers.

lol - yes i understood it - icon_smile.gif

If my cake is a bit domed i usually turn mine upside down and use the bottom for the top.
That way you get a sharper edge around the top rim to work with.

I place mine cut side up. First I level it in the pan to get the dome off because if you put the dome down, it can end up cracking later when it settles. Put enought batter in the pan so it rises above the rim, then using your knife and the side of the pan as a guide, level off your cake. And for the top, I use cut side down. Crumb coating takes care of the crumbs.
