I am going to do a cake each is 2 layers 12" 10" and 8"
when putting the layers together should I have both bottoms up
so the middle is one top and one bottom or should i have both tops together in the middle? which way will create less of a bulge?
Thanks for any info

your post was a little difficult to understand, i dont quite get what you mean by both bottoms up? ?

Normally when i do a cake, i cut in half, so two layers. i put the bottom layer, on the top. so ive got a nice flat surface ontop of the cake. And the top half, goes on the bottom, but i do slice of any bulge so its flat with the board.

sorry-hard to explain
the 12 inch cake i have baked is 2 layers
when i put the layers together with the icing inbetween these two layers
which side do I put on the cake board?
which two sides are together in the middle of cake?

I put the to tops in the middle so both the bottom of the cake and the top have nice flat surfaces.

I always level off the tops. That way ALL of my surfaces are level.
