    This is more of a construction project than baking. Getting the layers off intact is the main challenge. Spray the pan liberally. Use a large spatula or a fish spatula to handle the largish sheets. Of course getting the icing on is another challenge, one I am not good at. My wife usually has to handle that chore.
