The bride wants a one layer 12 square on top of a one layer 14 in. square. Can I put both cut sides ( I cut off the rounded top) down, so I have a smooth cake to ice. Normally, I put the cut sides together for a two layer.

Thank you,
Sandy

I've put a cut side down on the board and never had a problem.

sure you can. you dont even need a board between them but to make decorating it easier but the 12" on its own board with a few cute bobatea straws in the 14" for support. Plus doing this it will be easier for the servers.

Good suggestion.

I did one similar for a Home Depot Christmas Party. It was a 12x18 on top of an 18x24: http:[email protected]/3091248101/

No boards or dowels betweeen the layers. I just cut the cake like a regular 2-layer cake: http:[email protected]/3091248085/ .

The part of the base cake that was sticking out that was single layer, I cut into 2x2x2" pieces. When I got to the 2-layer part of the cake, I then cut it in 1x2x4" pieces. Here's a pick of cut pieces ..... some are single flavor 2x2x2's; some are 2-flavor 1x2x4's. The 2-flavor pieces went over VERY well! http:[email protected]/3092088610/

Oh, yeah! I do too! (dumb me) I just get a little unsure of myself when I do something different.

Thank you everyone for your replies!! You all are awesome!
