How do you not get your fingers in the icing right above the cardboard when moving one cake on top of the other? I know I read this somewhere but have done a search and cannot find it. Help!
Some don't push their supports all the way down, so their fingers have room to get out of the way. Then the weight of the cake pushes the supports down.
Sometimes, if you're doing a border around each tier, the finger marks get covered anyway.
How do I pick up the cakes to put on the supports?
Thanks for the quick response.
do you use a turn table? I usually have a cloth on mine and pull the cake across the turntable just far enough to be able to pick it up.
I do use a turntable. So I guess if I put a cloth underneath it and then pull it towards me that should work better. Then the circle underneath the cake is supposed to be the size of the cake without the buttercream.. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks for your help!
yes that's right
Another decorator that I know told me to use one hand to lift up half the cake and then use my angled spatula under the other side. Set the cake down and use the spatula to hold half of it up, then pull your hand out and set down with the spatula. Since it's flat it will just slide right out. I hope that makes sense
That totally makes sense.
