I'm making a top hat cake tonight, and it will be 4 two inch cakes, which will be covered with fondant. Do I put a cake board in the middle, like 2 cakes, a board, then 2 more cakes?
So it'll be 8" high? I think a board would be a good idea, cause it's like stacking a regular cake on top of a regular cake.
I've stacked four 2" layers before without a problem, but adding the cake board in the middle would give it extra support and make cutting the individual servings easier.
Yes 8" tall! YIKES!
thanks for the input, I'm glad I was on track.
Hi don't mean to hyjack your post, but I'm having a similar dilemma for a cake I'm making this weekend.
I'm planning on covering ALL the layers in ONE piece of fondant to make it look like one unit. If I do this, how do you cut it and still have frosting on top of the layers under the cake boards? Or maybe you don't and that's just the way it is....?
Thanks for ANY advice
