I am a newbie and I am making "practice" cakes. I'm wondering if you do something to keep the frosting from lifting off the bottom layer when you remove the top layer. I just have the cardboard cake circle under the top layer. What should I be doing? Thanks for the help.

Put parchment paper or powdered sugar between the layers to stop it from pulling the frosting off when you lift off the layer.

I use the bits of cake that are trimmed off to make the cake level to make cake crumbs and then put a thin layer of those under the cake board.
