Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me with the following. I have been asked to do a 4 tier cake frosted in Ganache. Is this possible? Is it stackable and how do you prevent it from sliding, or better yet sticking, when removing the tiers? I appreacaite any assistance. Thank you in advance. icon_confused.gif

Yes you can stack a cake covered with ganache. sine you don't want it stuck together, i would use the hidden pillar method just cut the pillars so that they are slightly higher then the cake (no more then a 1/4in) and use a plate with feet to set the next cake on top.
