Please help! I am planning on stacking two 14" square layers that are 3" tall. Will the top layer collapse the bottom layer? I am planning on filling them. Thank you!!
Those are gonna be mighty heavy tiers. By the time you torte & fill a 3 inch layer, you're pretty close to the 4 inches that would normally be a full tier.
If it were me, I think I might treat it like 2 tiers by placing some dowels in the bottom layer and placing the top "tier" on it's own cake board before stacking.
Just my .02
yeah, I'd do like blackscakes said, treat it like a stacked or tiered cake, otherwise it will LEAN and tower over.
I agree... that is some heavy cake... with dowels and it's own board, all will be good
Ditto. cardboard and dowel like its 2 cakes and then ice as 1. I do it all the time.
Thanks so much - it's great to come to a forum where I can get great advice from more experienced and really nice people!!
