Place the second cake pan upside down on a piece of rug gripper.  Mark a line around the pan about 1/2 inch larger.  Cut out the circle from the rug gripper.

Top the first pan with the second pan and lay the rug gripper circle on top.

This technique also works for tiered displays.

In case you have a perfect tray and don’t want to make it interchangeable…use the E-6000 glue.  Measure around four sides to center one cake pan to the bottom of the tray.  The glue needs to sit for 24 hours for a permanent seal.
