Does anyone have tips or ideas on how to lift and turn over large cakes onto cake bases for decorating? I made two 12" round cakes that needed to be stacked on top of each other. The cakes baked perfectly but began to split when I removed them each from their Saran wrap covering and when I tried to move them to their cake base. It's a miracle they made it at all. I have a cake lifter from Wilton but found it to be just as hard trying to turn my top layer over onto the first layer. I really need some good advice as this could become disastrous each time I do a cake.

Freeze them first. I stack and fill then wrap with glad press-n-seal 'till they thaw. Works like a charm. There's lots of threads on here about freezing layers also.
