Leveling the cake, gives you a flat surface to ice, makes stacking much easier, and makes the completed cake much more stable. The amount you trim depends on the height of the crown. You only need to trim off enough to give you a flat, even surface. Freezing the cakes before trimming is not necessary, but you do want to make sure the cake is completely cooled. Try the Utimate Cake Leveler, which is easy to use and gives you professional-looking results!
