What do you use under your cakes to transfer them or even work on them easier besides the spin table? and also what would you put between tiers of cakes if your not going for the gap in between them?
Welcome to cc! You will be addicted soon, there is so much to learn.
I put my cakes on cardboard covered with freezer paper.
I always use a turntable to decorate the cakes.
When I stack cakes, I use cardboard covered in contact paper.
I assume you know you have to put supports in each tier that a cake will be sitting on.
