  • Now take the bottom tier from the fridge and set it on the cake board. Now carefully place the cake on the cake stand or serving platter. 
  • Next, measuring the cake height, cut the 9-inch cake to match. Spacing the cake 3 inches apart from 4 corners of the square, Insert the 9-inch cake on the top of the 11inch layer. Then push the middle layer straight down to touch the bottom layer. Set the 6-inch layer similarly on the very center of the middle cake layer.
