Want a good laugh? So I started decorating cakes about 2 years ago. I do mostly tiered cakes. I've basically only done them for friends and family. I have NEVER used cake boards in between my tiers. HAHAHA. I can't believe my layers have never collapsed!!! I obviously taught myself how to decorate and never got the cake board memo....hahahaha dumb blonde moment....hey, I'm naturally a blonde, I'm entitled to these moments icon_smile.gif

I'm trying to imagine how you transferred your decorated tier onto the lower tier..........don't tell me....did you stack then ice and decorate? Didn't the tiers stick together? Did you use dowels or any support under the tiers?

Wow, this is a new one...LOL!!

Yea, I stacked and then iced and decorated. I always use dowels for support just never used cake boards in betweem. And YES, they always stick together. DUH! HAHAHA wow...I'm something else

Lol I've done that. I did a 3D egg on top of a three-layer 9" round cake. I just plopped the egg on top without a board or any dowels. Then couldn't figure out why the round cake started bulging around the sides and all the frosting ripped off the bottom cake when I took the egg off. Thank goodness it was just a free cake I brought with me to a friend's party. icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

Hey, don't sweat it! We're actually the weird ones, because Sandra Lee does it all the time and never has problems either! icon_biggrin.gif
