Egg whites in the carton - definitely. I have never had a problem with them.
I am baking my largest layer yet - 16" square. How in the world do I handle these layers as far as torting and stacking go? I am pretty sure that I will not have any help and I just cannot figure out how to handle it without cake falling to pieces!! Any help would be greatly appreciated - it is my nieces wedding cake.

I think it is just fine - I do understand - the first wedding cake I did was a total disaster - I made a mixture of bc and smbc for the frosting - she wanted textured buttercream (what could be easier??) The butter in the smbc solidified into lumps and if the cake got the least bit warm, the frosting started sliding. 3 hours before it was due I scraped off every bit of frosting - made a new batch of bc and started over - it happens to us all at one time or another.
