Ok, I am working on my wedding cake and I have a question. I really hope someone can answer me quick. Do I frost with bc in between each layer? They are 2 inch layers or what is the correct way to do this? Please help.

You should always torte a wedding cake. Yes put in a nice filling or buttercream icing. If using a filling always dam around the edge so that the filling won't bulge out of the sides of the cake.

If you tort them then yes. if you add a filling, just make a dam with the bc and then add thin layer of filling.

So, if you have 2-2inch layers, I split both of them in half. That way you have 4 layers of cake, and 3 layers of filling.

ok, so do I use that humongous tip or just slap it on? Do I go like 1 1/2" in to start my dam? I hope I don't sound stupid but this is my first real layered cake. Thanks for your help

My cake is 12, 10 & 8. I baked 2 of each. Chocolate and white. So, I don't need to split those layers, just level and frost in between, Correct?

If using BC, I just smooth it on almost to the edge. I would still tort each layer so that you get 4 layers of cake to 3 layers of BC.

mof of 4luvscakes: ok, so just split all of my layers in half and fill with butter cream, correct? I don't mean to sound stupid, I just want to do it correctly. Thank you very much

just use the coupler without a tip. dont put too much filling cuz it will come out of the sides. make sure to put it close enough to the edge so that when you put the top layer on you can see the dam so it will be easier to frost

Yes. That way your 2 layers of each size cake will be about 4 inches tall after splitting and filling.
