I am doing a wedding cake for my close friend who happens to live 3 hours away, I am doing a 14, 10 and 6 inch stacked cake, does anyone ever stack their cakes just to make sure everything is intact and then take them apart b4 transporting? I want to stack this cake b/c each tier has a little flaw and I want to see the best possible way to stack it at the reception.

Does anyone else do this? I usually don't stack my cakes to check them but for some reason I am nervous about this one! All 3 tiers have fondant on them. The top 6 inch is really leaning, it's driving me nuts and the 10 inch seems a bit lopsided too - UURRGGHHH I'm afraid that I will mess up the fondant when taking it back apart.


thanks for any help!

OOPS, I just noticed I spelled stacking wrong in my title, I guess I'm just out of it!!!!!!

Oh, and by the way, the cake is totally free for her, I shouldnt get so bent out of shape about being perfect but this is her first marriage and she is 42!

Since it's fondant, I don't see it being a problem. I would actually do the same thing.
