I don't know why, but lately I have been having trouble moving large cake layers - like a 2" high 12" or larger cake.

I've tried cake cardboards...but the cake is usually so moist that it sticks to the cardboard.

I've tried Wilton's cake lifter, but it's not that big.

I've tried just picking it up with my hands.

Any ideas?

Try a cookie sheet with no edge. Spray it first with pam spray.

The cookie sheet method has worked well for me.

Ditto on cookie sheet. It works wonders!

I have a couple of very thin, somewhat flexible chopping boards from Ikea, which are really good for sliding under a cake.
