Ok, I'm wondering, how do you cut the double barrel cakes?? And lets say the top is 4 rounds with a filling, so that would make 8 layers with filling(you get what I'm saying) does that still count as 1 serving and it would be a huge piece of cake or do you take that layer, cut it in half and make it a normal size?? I'm confused and having a slow moment dunce.gif

Usually if it's a double-height tier, there will be a board and dowels inside, so that you're cutting normal height slices and getting the right number of servings while you're at it.

I too have wondered about this. So if I use IMBC how would the top tier not stick to the bottom since my boards would be on top of my icing. Even using plastic dowels I don't think my lower cake would have any icing left on it.

I am pretty new to decorating, but I read that you can put a small amount of shredded coconut on that layer and the icing will stay put.
