Heres my question: My wife makes an incredible crumb cake. We would like to take that crumb cake and cream fill it. Dilema: How do you slice the cake in half and maneuver the top and bottom without flipping the top or breaking the bottom - dont want to loose the crumbs either.. the size is 9x13.
This is very easy. Slice the cake horizontally with a bread knife and then slide the thin, metal bottom of a springform pan between the layers and lift. They also make cake lifters designed for the task.
This may work for the 9x13 cake, if it’s sufficiently stiff, but you probably need something wider to adequately support the layer. A cookie sheet, perhaps.
