When filling layers, use less filling than you usually would.
Your dam of icing should also be far enough from the edge so the filling doesn’t flow out and form a bubble in the icing.
The Wilton cake icer tip (# 789) is an invaluable timesaver in icing wedding tiers.
You will have fewer crumbs when icing, if cakes are baked a day in advance.
