this is my 1st time using this pan and thankfully the cake came out nicely. I'm wondering if I should slice it in half to fill it or just leave it alone. the cake will be covered in bc, they don't want fondant. I'm not which way to go. If anyone has made these before could you please let me know if I should cut it in half and fill it or not. the thickest part of the cake is about 3 inches and where I would cut it is 1inch. thank-you

I have made this cake several times and because of the sloped sides it makes the cake look too skinny so I always bake two cakes and then invert them or cut the top off of the one cake and then just fill and stack.Gives a really nice high cake...

Well when you sandwich two cakes together you get a torte.

I just took a look and wow that's awesome. I love butter cream work. This one I'm doing is also BC but I wish to leave it white and accent it with blue flowers. I wish to know how to give the 2 tone affect with the bc. Would you mind sharing that technique?thank-you

Graciesj....I airbrushed the bottom border and the top frame around.The flowers are also airbrushed the same hue.I also took a small spatula a did the centre cross section with blue icing and then piped around the corners to give it a crisp look.
