I have stacked cakes before and always use dowels or some support under the upper layer that sits on a board. My question may seem silly to some but it has been in my mind. Question: when serving a stacked cake and you are finished with the upper layer, I remove the board but there is always this space on the bottom cake that the frosting has been messed up or completely gone due to the stack; is there anyway to fix this or what do others do? This is for a baby shower that will have a 7x11 in the middle of an 11x15.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Anyone have any suggestions? What about waxed paper, parchment, or powdered sugar under the board of top cake?
I read somewhere (not sure where) that you can sprinkle PS or coconut on the tiers below before stacking. Hope this helps.
Not sure if I would put coconut there some people are allergic to it. I have used powder sugar and it worked fine.
someone may have a better tip but I always use parchment paper and it seems to work
I cut a piece of waxed paper just a tad smaller than my cake board and tape it on the underside. I use double-stick tape so the tape doesn't touch the frosting and I've never had the frosting come off. HTH
Thank you all for your suggestions. I used waxed paper taped under the board and sprinkled cake icing that would be under the board with ps. Had no problem at all a baby shower today? You guys are great help!
