  • Depending on how much your cakes rise you make have to trim the tops off the pudding cakes (flat side) to make the cake look more round than oval when put one on top of each other.Shape one cake to make it round (this will sit on the top. The other can stay flat since you want it to sit on a cake board.
  • Put one cake on top of the other (see pics) and check the shape, if it looks more oval than round then slice a piece off the cake from the flat side. Once you have the right shape, spread 1/3 of the butter cream onto the flat side of one cake and then place the other on top (see pics).
