ok, so i am doing a cake friday, as i was making my list of items to buy, i was thinking about stacking, and i have a question, i don't know if i am overanalyzing or what, but when you stack a cake all iced in buttercream, when you cut apart the cake by tiers, when you lift the tiers off doesn't all the buttercream come off the top of the one below it?? And also does everyone use a cardboard circle and plastic plate inbetween stacked layers or just cardboard, for a two-tierd cake lets say???? Just curious, and if the buttercream does come off is there a trick to it.....thanks for taking the time to reply
I put a circle of waxed paper between the tiers, a little smaller than the tier above, The icing is still going to stick some, but it won't totally pull off the cake. Some people put coconut between the tiers, but I don't want coconut on the cake unless it's part of the flavor to begin with.
Great thanks...sorry about the hundred posts of this, the computer was being weird and everytime i tried to post it said it didn't work, now i see it redeemed itself like 15 times...sorry again, and thanks for the tip
I sprinkle powdered sugar between tiers.
I cover the cardboard between the layers with Press and Seal. The icing doesn't stick to it. Possibly because it is textured.
Powdered sugar works well too under the boards.
thank for all the ideas !
