I am relatively new to cake decorating. I recently made a two tiered cake using pettinie fondant. The top tier stuck to the fondant on the bottom when we tried to serve the cake. How do I prevent this?

Thanks for the help

Did you have a cake board under the top tier? Hmmm, I don't know what to suggest. Maybe a smear of BC under the top cake board? That way the fondant won't stick to the board???? Obviously with all the ??? I'm guessing here! icon_smile.gif

I know this works for buttercream. It may for fondant too. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on the bottom cake just where the top cake will be sitting on it. It should be enough to keep it from sticking. I assume teh top tier has a wrapped board and is doweled.

A light layer of cake crumbs works very well to prevent this problem.
