OK, I'm stuck! 99% of my cakes are fondant. I do lots of wedding cupcake towers and for the first time, someone has asked for a BC covered cake for the top tier rather than a fondant covered one. They don't want the BC to be perfectly smooth - they'd like a more textured covering to go with the swirly cupcakes.

So- my question is, how do I put the 6" top tier cake on the top plate of my cupcake stand? If it were fondant covered, I'd put a 6" board under the cake and just extend the fondant covering over it so that it looked as through the cake were sitting directly on the plate. Do I do the same with buttercream and just buttercream down over the board? Or something else?

Thanks! icon_smile.gif

Yes, you need to out the cake on a board as same size as the cake. Then cover the whole thing with bc. Here is a link for tonedna's "How to ice a cake with bc",
