I have a question. A few years ago I tried to make moccatart (http://images.google.nl/imgres?imgur...lr%3D%26sa%3DG). But what happens: it grew not bigger, so that I had a tart of 2 cm. Because it was 5 years ago or longer, I don't know how I did it. Mostly I follow the things which are standing at the packaging. I couldn't hardly cut the tart to put creme between it. I had a special iron rope for that (http://images.google.nl/imgres?imgurl=http://www.clipbv.com/images/clipware/42429.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.clipbv.com/nl/clipware.html&h=225&w=300&sz=7&hl=nl&start=2&tbnid =EkOlNVBw1aUxgM:&tbnh=83&tbnw=111&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dtaartsnijder%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Dnl%2 6lr%3D).
Can someone tell me what I did wrong?

Let me be sure I understand your question. You are trying to split a cake layer evenly in order to spread filling in between? Here's one way you can do it without special equipment (other than a ruler and some toothpicks):
  1. Place the cake layer on a flat surface.
  2. Stand the ruler next to the cake.
  3. Stick a toothpick part way into the cake at the 2cm height.
  4. Move the ruler around the cake, sticking in toothpicks at the right height.
  5. When the cake is surrounded, take a long knife, or a piece of strong thread or clean wire or dental floss, and using the toothpicks as a guide, cut through the cake layer.
  6. Lift off the top layer and set it aside.
  7. Spread the filling evenly on the bottom layer.
  8. Replace the top layer, cut side down.

That should give you two nice, even filled layers.
