If your tiers sit on top of eachother, is there anyway to salvage the frosting on the top of the lower tiers?

When I disassemble the cake, it always seems to result in a big mess!

Any tips for me?

Thanks!!

Try sifting some powdered sugar between your tiers. Some people use coconut, too. HTH.

I place a circle or square of parchment, about 1 inch smaller than the above tier, between tiers. When disassebled, the parchment peels right off with no damage.

I avoid coconut or nuts due to the potential for allergies.

The parchment is a great idea - you could use p. sugar and parchment just to be safe!

I let the tiers sit unassembled for several hours, sometimes overnight, before stacking. Once the icing has crusted that much, mine never seem to stick.

I really appreciate the help on this. I used waxed paper between the tiers and it worked like a charm. It was one extra step, which I don't like, but it was totally worth it!
