How to Tort, level & fill a cake
In this video, we learn how to tort, level, and fill cake. When your cake bakes, you get a mound or crown at the top. You will want to cut this off, or else your cake will crack. The next step is to just stick a cake board underneath and remove it. You can also torte the cake, which means to use a cake leveler to make it completely even on the surface. After you do this, you can make a dam around the cake about 1/4" of the way in. use a coupler on your bed and fill it in so it can hold what you put inside for your filling between the two layers. After you fill it in, you can place the other cake on top and then ice and enjoy!
