I recently made a double layer 12x16 and I cooled it on a cooling rack in the pan. Then when I wanted to cool the other side I took the cakeboard I was going to put it on and put that on top of the cake and pan and just flipped it out on it. Because of the heat and condensation from cooling it stuck to that board better than if I cemented it!!!! icon_lol.gif When I needed to cool the other layer I let it cool on 1 side and then put wax paper on a cake board and did the flip trick. Then when cool, I put it on the other layer after I had torted them and filled them both.

Welcome to Cake Central. If you have two smaller cooling racks, you can put the together with a couple of twist ties. invert them over the cake in the pan, put a board on top of the racks, and flip the whole thing over. It might help to have an extra set of hands.

I have the large cooling racks from Michael's. After I have leveled the cake, I put the cooling rack upside down on the cake, hold it tightly (almost squeezing it together), and flip it over.

I just used my 40% at Michaels coupn to get the biggest size cooling rack. It is great even on smaller cakes. I just flip the rack, put it on the cake, flip cak and let it sit. Sometimes I will flip it onto a cake board, then onto the rack if it has a definite top side.

Yeah, I find them at Micheal's. I think they are $7.99. I buy them when I have nothing else to spend a coupon on.

Next time I'm in there I need to check those out. Are they with the other cooling racks or with the wilton products?
