I will make my first stacked cake soon. It will be 3 tier, all cream cheese frosting with a chocolate scroll work. I would prefer first decorate, than stack, would that be OK? The scroll work will be mostly on upper sides of each cake. I am only concern, that when I will stack each cake, I will need to smooth the sides if any damage occur. I don't feel comfortable to do the scroll work on stacked cake, as the mobility to move the cake around....
Definitely ice then stack. The decorating can be done before or after ... I've done both.
I agree with Indydebi.
i only ever use fondant, so i have to decorate Then stack. its each to there own really. find what works for you
Thank you. I will first decorate than stack.
if you refridgerate the cakes until firm before you stack them you should have no problem with finger prints and what not.
I ice, fondant stack and then decorate whenever possible. I save the fun part for last! Plus I like to move the fondant tiers while they're still pliable.
