Has anyone successfully torted and filled this cake? (the Wilton cross)If so, any suggestions?. I have an order for one, but they'd like it filled with chocolate, then decorated outside in white and flowers, etc. I've never used it as anything but a single layer cake. THANKS!!! PAT

I think it's too thin of a cake to torte. Maybe if you get it really cold or freeze it you can. And using those big cake spatulas would help even more.

Good Luck!

Use the wilton small torting wire.set it to cut the cake exactly on half.Once that is done I take a 19x13 wilton cake board and slip it inside the middle of the cake and lift the top part of the layer off.Fill the inside of the cake.Gently stand sort of over top the cake and wiggle the top layer over to the edge of the cardboard it is on and gently slide it on top of the filled layer.I move it around if it is a bit off centre.The ice as normal.The cardboard helps the cake from breaking or tearing.
