If you are using two cakes, prepare them but trimming them to ensure they sit well together.
Using toothpicks or skewers, lay the template on your cakes and anchor it down so that it doesn't slip.
Tip: Make sure you count the toothpicks or skewers to ensure you remove them all when you are finished cutting your cake.
Remove the template and all the toothpicks or skewers and it is ready to ice and decorate.
Tip: You can use off cuts to make cake pops. Cake pops are fun little cakes on sticks. They are great for take home treats or extra party food nibbles.
