Hello all. I am very new to cake stuff. Have been taking the Wilton classes for six weeks, so I am half way through course two.
I like to play a lot at home though, on non-class related cakes.
This weekend I wanted to play with my four heart pan set, so I made a stacked cake. I can't find heart shaped separator plates locally, so I just stacked them directly on top of one another.
It is holding up well, but after I made it realized that it is going to be very hard to cut and serve this way.
Since I now realize that separator plates will be pretty important, do they make them for the paisley shaped pans? Because I just bought that set also, just haven't tried stacking any cakes from it yet. However, in the Wilton 2010 yearbook, I didn' teven see them for sale.
Hey jodibug! Welcome to CC (we call my little sister "Loribugs"!)
If you don't have separator plates, put some dowel (support) rods in each layer, then put the next tier on a cardboard (cut to the shape of the cake) and place on top of the dowel rods.
Then to cut it, just remove each cake tier on it's cardboard and cut each one individually.
