Forgive me, I'm sure it's here somewhere a million times, but I can't find it (and of course I'm in a hurry). I've made plenty of cakes, but never one this large - for 300 (to help out a friend). Anyway...

The bottom tier is 16" - I have my layers - but, how in the world do you move layers that big? So I put my dam on the bottom layer (am going to fill now) - but I'm perplexed about how I'm going to get the second layer on there without breaking it! The bottom side of the cake is a bit sticky (moist) - I don't think it will easily just slide off the board it's been sitting on. Is that what everyone does -- or is there some easy trick I'm just not figuring out.

Thank you! Sorry for the dumb question.

I think sliding it off a board is the easiest way if it's started to stick some just put another board on top of the cake and flip it over again and then immediately slide it off that board onto the cake!! I really think when they're that large sliding it is the only way it's going to happen!
