I've only stacked cakes once before, and they were quite sturdy cakes, so I just put them on top of each other(3 of them) I hear you are supposed to put plates / boards in between and use dowels for support???! icon_eek.gif One little question - do you put the board under the second cake before covering it together with the cake, or do you cover the cakes and put the boards in between?? icon_confused.gif

put your booards under your tiers before you ice them... then stack. make sure you have dowels of some type in the lower tier to suppert the uppers. I think there is a how to on this site somehwere....
