Every time I do a stacked cake, the board from the cake above the next tier sticks to the fondant and I have to scrape the fondant off and it looks messy. Is there any trick to this?

I usually sprinkle a little powdered sugar and smooth it on the top of the tier. That way there isn't a big pile of it on there and he boards don't stick! HTH!!!!

I wrap my boards in press and seal wrap. The fondant doesn't stick to it. Also, if you let the fondant dry a while on the bottom tier before you put the top tier on, it will not be sticky anymore.

Thanks so much. I am going to try the powders sugar method as I have already put the cakes on the boards so I cant wrap them, but I will definitely try that next time.

I use cake scraps to make cake crumbs and sprinkle a dusting of those.

i find this topic really interesting as i always looked at the tiers sticking as extra structual suipport, unless you don't transport stacked cakes? hm food for thought hehe
