When stacking a cake and using wooden dowels and cardboard rounds, is it necessary to cover the cardboard rounds with parchment or foil or something?
I have done it both ways and both times the cake has been OK, but I am wondering if one way is better.
On one hand, I would hate for the top tiers to slide around in transport, which seems more likely if the cardboard is covered for some reason, but if Idon't cover it, it seems like the board would get greasy and the cake would sink.
Pardon typos- I have already taken out my contact lenses for the night, but could not sleep because I was tossing and turning over this. When do I get to the point where I don't spend all my waking hours thinking about my current cake project?
I always wrap my boards in decorator foil, all the way around. I'm always afraid the cardboards will get moist.
As far as cake projects, I'm still up at night (just like now. it's midnight) thinking about my cake projects. For me it's been 3 years. When I have no projects pending, I'm thinking about what I'd like to try next, and will one of my customers let me do it instead of the dreaded sheetcake.
I use to cover each of my boards with foil and then I read on here that most people don't so I quit (just another expense that I can save on). So far I've had no issues.
Can I talk you into trying SPS?
