I need help with getting the top portion onto the iced one.... my biggest fear/stress is always getting that top layer on. Yesterday i was placing a half sheet onto the iced cake and it ended up off sided and was a nightmare to try to move!! my cake is already in the top up position and I try to line it up and shake it off the board which never is easy because its moist and sticky and this method causes crumbs to fall everywhere. I know ive seen cake shows where they lay it across their arm line it up at the top and slide arm out....its got to be frozen???? theres no way i could do this . should i freeze the cakes first? Ive never put a cake in the freezer so any help there i would appreciate too!...wrapping it etc. I

might add this half sheet i did yesterday was red velvet icon_evil.gif a crumbly nightmare. Are there certain cakes you WOULDNT do in a sheet?? Does anyone tweek recipes to make them firmer?? thanks!
