So, are you saying that you just cool the wort all the way down in the kettle and add it straight to the used primary carboy? My huge problem is not being able to cool the wort fast enough.

when you say pitch on the cake do you mean you siphon the pale ale out the bucket and drain the kettle right into the bucket the pale ale came out of?

Yes, that's correct. Basic Brewing Video has a video on it, if you want to see it done.
