Hi Cakers!

This is the first time in a few months that I made a 12 round cake. What a pain in the butt! Is there any tricks to the trade on how to handle large layers? Trying to move such a large layer seems tricky.

How do you place it above the bottom layer without scraping out any of your filling?

If interested, here is the finished product

Tips and Suggestions are appreciated!

Use a cake board and kinda hold slightly to the side of where you want to put it and gently slide it onto the cake. It's hard to explain but once you practice you will get the hang of it.

In addition to the advice above, freeze the cake for about 20 minutes.

Ditto, i freeze all of my cakes (i level and torte before hand) and then let them thaw for about 15-20 minutes so they aren't frozen anymore, but they're still cold and firm. So much easier to handle.
