Can one of you experts please explain how to stack a cake like the Martha Stewart one below? Hers is fondant, but I plan to do all buttercream.
I've only done one stacked cake before. I decorated all tiers separately, then stacked them and added bottom borders to hide the separations between the tiers.
If you aren't going to have borders, though, how do you hide those lines or the tiny edge of the cardboard circle that might be visible? Do you stack it first, then decorate it as one big cake?
Thanks in advance!!!! Julie
Edna has a video on utube for stacking. It shows how she finishes the edges when stacking. It might be what you are looking for:
And also if you watch Edna's other video on how you cover the cakes with buttercream, that also will be helpful. Here is the link,
That was the first time I watched that one. It was awesome! The music choice made it that much more enjoyable too!!!! 4 thumbs up on that one!
Thank you so much for the links to the videos -- I feel confident now!!!
Also, a big thanks to Edna for sharing her techniques!!!
