Making a 3 tiered, square wedding cake. Two layers each tier. One of the bottom layers cracked, bad. I think I moved it when it was too hot. Since this will be the cake base, I don't think I should try to salvage it, should I? then I think, well, it will be covered in fondant.
What do you think? I have plenty of time.

If you can repair it, do so. The other tiers won't be resting on it anyway...they'll be resting on the supports, right?

If it's just one of the two layers, then push it back together as tightly as you can and top it with the other layer. Should be fine.

It's not unlike making a huge tier that's comprised of several smaller cakes pushed together.

Good luck!

Yes, what they ^^^^ said. It certainly can be saved if it will go back together (not all crumbs but big chunks that can be pushed together w/icing as glue).

My 4 tier square cake had a huge tear in the bottom tier, but it came out just fine! Just make sure the supports are stable!

Ok, so I'll try that. It is still cooling and I can't really Squish it together yet. Hope its okay to do when it is cooled and I put it on the cake board and fill.

So you think the cracked one should be the bottom layer. And right, the supports will hold it. I need to go back and read how many dowels for a 13" square holding up a 9" then 5.

So much to learn.
