I have tried torting a cake and it fell apart : / any suggestions on how I can get it to hold up?
you probably need a more sturdy cake recipe i like this one http://cakecentral.com/recipes/1972/durable-cake-for-3d-and-wedding-cakes
Or, if your recipe is more delicate, torte it frozen. The cake will be sturdier while frozen.
And don't try to lift it with a spatula - I used a thin laminated placemat to shimmy in between the cut layers and it was easy to lift, fill, and then slide back on top.
