What is the best way to cut one cake layer into two separate layers half the thickness?
Hi Carol, I use a long cake knife for this. You will need a turntable as well. Find the center of the layer (I do it by eye, you can measure if you want to ) As you turn your cake you will cut into the layer.
Then you would take a cardboard round the same size as your cake and slip it in between the two layers to lift the top cake layer off when you are ready to fill the cakes.
It may take some practice to make the layers even. But don't worry too much if it isn't perfect as it will not show once the cakes are frosted and decorated. When sliced they will still look fine.
Hope that answers your cutting cake layers question.
