I am making a pirate ship cake by using 2 round layers and cutting them in half and stacking the layers side by side.  I usually frost the layers in butter cream but  have been requested to use pudding for the filling instead.  My question is will the pudding sink to the bottom of each layer or will it stay in place as if the layers were stacked on top of each other. Also should I use a homemade custard/pudding or an instant pudding

i understand what you mean with your cakes standing with their cut side down on the board - so to make your filling work after you assemble those cakes sandwiched together with regular icing -- torte them once so you can fill it horizontally - you can separate the new 'layer' with a cardboard circle -because it's a sculpture it the filling & all won't be perfectly proportioned but it will work - and whichever recipe you use it must be kept refrigerated -

best to you
