without pulling up all the icing on the bottom layer. How in the world can this be done???? When I do my tiers, I place the top layer on a board and use the straws or dowels as support...then place the board with the top layer on the support dowels. When I'm going to serve the cake I remove the top layer, but the icing always comes off the bottom layer. Am I doing this all wrong?!?! Or is there no way to keep the icing from coming up? I'm new at this cake art and need some serious help! icon_confused.gif

TIA

I take some powdered sugar and sprinkle on top of each tier before I stack them. It keeps the icing from sticking to the board sitting on top of it.

You can sprinkle a tiny bit of corn starch on the icing to help it not to stick to the cake board.
