Hi! I have a couple of cakes this weekend where I'm going to be making the bottom tier a 14in circle on one and a 16in square on one. I can flip the cake out of the pan onto my board, make my dam and fill it, then I get stuck...how do I get the top layer on it? When the cakes are large, they always crack when I try to flip them onto the bottom layer. Is there a "trick" I don't know about? Any advice would be appreciated!

Don't flip them. You can slide them from the board they are on.

I agree with the PP. Sliding gives you more control than flipping and your cake won't crack.
