you have to make a dam.. of icing ..if you torte your layers or if you just stack 2 layers together.. 2 layes make a tier.. or if you torte your layers... then you will have 3 layers of filling . and then the last torted layer is the top.. hope this makes sense. so, you make your dam out of stiff icing. some people add more powder sugar to their buttercream and make it pretty stiff. then you would not us a tip . but just the coupler. and make a ring around the inside of the cake layer. then, add the filling of your choice and then put the top layer of cake on.. and make sure it fits good. and snug.. then let cake set up for several hours . before icing and decorating it.. sharon zambito.. a c/c er has a great dvd on buttercream and putting a dam around inside of cake for fillings. so they will not ooze out.. her site is sharonssugarshack.com.. she has wonderful dvds. all aspects of decorating.. hth
