"I've learned the hard way that the key to keeping a layer cake stable is to make sure all of the layers are even. I like to get eye level with each layer and cut off the dome with a large bread knife. Sometimes I'll use a ruler to measure each layer and mark my measurements with toothpicks before cutting. A revolving cake stand makes the whole process much easier."
