Ok I never stacked one of these before, is there anything that you do to keep the boards from pulling off the top layer of icing when they undo the cake? I just went to mark a layer and used the pan for a guide and when I lifted it up all the icing came up and I wondered if that's gonna happen when they go to cut the cake? Thanks

This is my second and last one of these cakes, I hate making that icing.

I have never done this but I think I read somewhere on here that people sprinkle the top with powdered sugar or coconut.HTH

Thanks I'll try that, The recipe I use for my buttercream nothing sticks to it.

I use a crusting buttercream and when I take the top tier off it always pulls some of the icing off. Do you cover your cardboard circle with anything to prevent this? Maybe I should try the sprinkle of powdered sugar. My fondant does the same when being pulled off.

kerry-cake...............no I use a crusting buttercream and let it sit up good and when I put my boards on I put the white side down and when I lift it up no icing comes with it, just works for me. The IMBC is what I HATE!!!!! If I had to try anything it would be the powder sugar cause some people do not like coconut.

OMG....have I been doing it wrong? icon_redface.gif I always put the white part so it's touching my cake.

I double my boards and put the brown parts together , so one white is touching bottom cake and one white is touching top cake. Sorry for not making that clear.
