Layer Cake



Layer Cake
How do you get bottom layer flat for layer cake?

I’m not a baker but, I’m making layer cake and need to know how to get bottom layer flat so I can frost without that big space between the layers. Any way to do it without cutting rounded top off?
You are all great! Answers galore. Thanks so much because I have to do this right now. It’s for tonight. Thanks again. Gee, how will I choose a ‘best answer’? : )
I’m still eating the one I ruined yesterday! I’m gonna get so fat! Ha,ha!
Uh Oh! I frosted it and the frosting must have been too heavy. The top layer split right in two. Well, it’s just for my young son and I think he will eat it anyhow. Thanks to everyone for wonderful answers.

My mom did quite a bit of cake decorating and she always cut it off, I just baked like 10 cakes for a fund raiser and had the same problem.. I should have followed my own advise!
