Hi All,

I'm gonna attempt doing this cake (below) next weekend. Do i need to put anything in between the cakes to support them or i can just stack them on top each other. This is my 1st try on stack cakes and would appreciate some tips. I intend to bake a 7x7" cake.

Thank you.

I would recommend having each cake on a board. I'd be afraid that the corners would droop otherwise. It would also make it easier to take apart to serve.

It would be best to place support boards and dowels between every two layers of cake. This will prevent the weight of the cakes from taking from a cube to cube with a spare tire.

I hope you post a picture because I love the Rubic's cube.

thanks for the quick advise guys.
do i place each layer of the cake on a 7" board (the cake is 7")? will the boards be very obvious when i serve the cake. also, how do i use dowels? sorry this is my 1st attempt on stack cakes.

michele, what do you mean when u say: "This will prevent the weight of the cakes from taking from a cube to cube with a spare tire". Don't quite get you.

Are you doing 2 layers of cake per section? If so, then make a regular cake with those 2 layers with the bottom cake sitting on a cake board the same size as the cake. Make 3 of these for each rotating layer. Put dowels in each tier to support the next tier.

By a spare tire I mean that the weight of the cake will cause the sides to buldge outward. Sorry, I was trying to be cute, I guess that crashed.
