This has probably been asked on here before but here it is again......When you stack your tiers how do you keep from messing them up. I have not stacked a fondant cake only butter cream and have a mess on my hands once I get the tier in place. I have either messed the one below but most of the time I have messed up the tier I am stacking. I temd to mess up the icing when I pick it up. How do you avoid that?

I place cardboard circle lightly on cake and score a light line right where cake needs to be placed after placing dowels in I hover over cake to get just the right spot then I drop it quickly onto position HTH

Thank you. I am so new at this and everything looks so easy on the instructionals but then I do it and its NOT! haha

Do you frost the second tier before you put it on or just crumb coat it and frost it after you stack it? I can't figure out how to lift the cake without messing the bottom.
