Things You'll Need

  • 12 inch cake pan
  • 8 inch cake pan
  • 6 inch cake pan
  • Non-stick cooking spray or vegetable oil
  • Waxed paper
  • Flour
  • 2 cake mixes
  • Cake plate
  • Frosting
  • Rubber spatula
  • Large spatula
  • Cake decorations
  • Icing tubes
Step 1

Spray all three pans with a non-stick cooking spray or spread vegetable oil evenly over the pans. Put one sheet of waxed paper in the bottom of each pan and then use a cooking spray or oil on the paper. Sprinkle some flour over the oil on the waxed paper. This will prevent sticking and allow the cake to come out of the pans smoothly.
