Will This Be A Problem When I Decorate?

I was multi-tasking with many chores when I took my two 8" cake layers out of the oven this evening. I went brain dead, and instead of letting the cake in the pans for 10 minutes, and then putting on a rack to cool, I immediately flipped them out of the pans and onto the cooling rack. The layers are still intact half an hour later. Do you think they'll remain intact? Will this be a problem when I decorate (as in, will it fall apart, or get crumbly?)

If they didn't crack at first I'm pretty sure they'll be okay.

I always flip my cakes out of the pans onto a cooling rack within a minute or two of being out of the oven. I used to wait but then I would usually end of leaving them too long!
They will be fine - as long as they didn't crack right when you flipped them I don't see why they would later.

I flip my cakes out of the pan right away all the time & never have a problem.

What recipe did you use? Most will be fine. I would be concerned if it's a straight box mix.
