Hey guys,

Really quick question, I am stacking a 4 tier fondant cake, I am going to travel with 3 of the tiers assembled and add the 4th tier on site.

My question is, after doweling the cake do you use anything between the tiers to 'glue' them together? I have looked through several how tos which havent helped. I know on ace of cake they put something between the tiers but cant work out if its buttercream or royal icing.

What would you suggest?

Thanks in Advance icon_smile.gif

I don't 'glue' my tiers together. I do dowel. I would think that they used royal icing.

I use buttercream in between layers.

I use buttercream but I'm sure the RI would work as well.

Cheers guys much appreciated, i have done stacked tiers before and have used buttercream, but this cake is going to one of the nicest venues in my area and i have been starting to double guess myself. Thanks ever so much, I think I'm going to go with buttercream!

Would the BC break down the Fondant? May be okay if the BC is not going to be on their to long. Just a thought?

No, the BC won't break down the fondant. It never has for me. Remember, there is BC under the fondant as well.
