stacking layers for 16 " cake?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am struggling with how to move a 16" layer to the top of another 16" layer without breaking/cracking the cake? These are 2" layers for a wedding cake. Ideas?
Help & Thank you!

Put the layer that is going to be on top on a 16" or larger cardboard circle. It will slide right off onto the bottom layer.....it slides much better off of cardboard than it does off of a cooling rack.

Or you can freeze the layer first, it doesn't eve have to be fully frozen, just firmed up, then you can pick it up.

I like to use a cookie sheet that doesn't have any side edges. Then put the whole thing (cake and cookie sheet) into the freezer for a little while until it is firm (doesn't have to be fully frozen). Then just line it up and push it off the cookie sheet slowly onto the layer below.

Good luck.

I have heard th at a cookie sheet with no sides is the best way to go. I would make sure that the cake is completly cool first

HI, I always freeze my 14 and 16 inch top layer. Works like a dream. Sandy

I, too, wrap and freeze the layer that's going to be on top so it's stiff enough to pick up.
