I want to put a 9-inch two layer cake on top of another 9-inch 2 layer cake, creating one tall cake.

I think I've figured out how to do it, but oh great cake masters: How do I cut it???

You can cut it like any other 9" layer cake... they just happen to be stacked upon one another. Make sure you use a cake board for every 4" of cake height.

Yep... you're going to do a layer of cake, layer of filling, then a layer of cake. Then I put a thin layer of frosting on the top, dowel the cake, and then put a cake board on top of the frosting. Then do it over again : )
That way when you cut into it, you're just going to be cutting into the top two layers until thats gone.

Yes, I did the same on an Uncle Sam hat cake. One thing I didn't do but will the next time I have a cake like that is put a circle (or square depending on the cake shape) of parchment paper on top of the cake before putting the board and second cake down.
I use only buttercream and I read here that if you do this, it helps keep the icing on top of the cake below and not on the bottom of the board.
