I use a flat cookie sheet I bought specially to separate the torted layers. If you don't have one, you can use another cake board to slide between the layers.

dont' stress, darlin' happens to all of us! thumbs_up.gif

I do the same as JoAnn.... tort the cake, then slide a flat baking pan or a large cardboard between the layers and remove the top layer. Add your filling, then just slide the cake from the cardboard back onto the cake.

If the cakes are slightly frozen (at least the top layer) it helps when handling them.

I do the same thing - I torte, then slide a cardboard in between the layers, lift off, fill, then slide the top back on. Indydebi's right (about two things) - if they are slightly frozen, it makes them easier to handle, and...
Don't stress too terribly much - we've all been there! It reminds me of a quote from one of my idols, Duff, "If you don't stress at least a little about something you're passionate about, you're not really passionate about it!"
Chin up!

PPs suggestions are good, and yes you can cut it in half to make it more manageable if you absolutely have to... but I would leave the bottom layer whole and just halve the one you need to move around.

if you do cut both in half (or if you use a smaller pan), make sure when you line them up you have the cuts running perpendicular to each other (forming a cross) rather than on top of each other.
