I'm making a wedding cake and the bride wants a stacked butter cream cake. She wants to keep the top layer for their 1st anniversary. How do you stack them without the frosting coming off when the top layer is lifted? I've never done a stacked butter cream wedding cake.

Thanks in advance for any advice!!

I sprinkle some icing sugar, then lay a piece of wax or parchment paper before laying down the tier

Hi, you can sprinkle a layer of powdered sugar on the bottom tier, before the middle tier goes on top of it. Or cut a circle to the size of the board of the middle tier from greese proof paper. icon_smile.gif

If you use a good crusting BC, and assemble after it's crusted, you won't have that problem. I cut most of my cakes at weddings and I've never had a sticking problem.
