Bake layers for all animals together in the oven. Different levels can be baked individually, but all the layers of an animal must be baked at the same time.

Refrigerate for about 20 minutes each layer, so that they cool in the pans before removal. After removal from the mold, each layer, place it on the cooling rack to cool completely.

Place each layer on its round cardboard and wrap it in plastic wrap. Keep the layers at room temperature, wrapped in this way, while you prepare the fillings and glazes.

Unwrap the layers and make them even by cutting off any bumps carefully with a sharp knife. Measure and mark the various levels around the middle with a toothpick. Cut each layer in half along the markings. That makes two shifts per animal.
