I am new to cake decorating and I am making a two-tiered wedding cake. How do you keep the cakes from sticking together? I made a cake a few weeks ago and when I went to remove the cake board to get to the bottom layer it took a layer of icing with it. How do I prevent this from happening? Thanks.

Hi and Welcome to CC, christinashea. icon_smile.gif

Using a crusting b/c will help. You can also dust powdered sugar or coconut (if you like coconut) where the cake boards will be.

Hello and Welcome to CC, christinashea!

I like to use grated/shaved chocolate or white chocolate. The easiest to use I've found is that almond bark kind that comes in what looks like an ice cube tray. Just shave or grate a "cube" over your cake after you've inserted your dowels/straws and then set the next tier on it. You can do the same thing with candy melts for colored icing.
