icon_smile.gif I know I have missed the answer to this somewhere but.....

Do you cover the card board circles to keep them from absorbing anything before placing cake on them and placing on separator plates??

Thanks for your help...

Let me preface this by saying that I am only a hobby baker; I know when using foamcore a lot of people put press-n-seal on that since that is not food safe. Since cake circles are food safe, you do not have to place anything over them. However, that being said, the cake circles do get very greasy and tend to weaken. I usually put plastic wrap over the cake circle (when I remember) so that when the cake is being taken apart, the cake circle doesn't give out. We need one of the pros on here to answer this correctly. I would very much like to know the correct way to do this.

Sorry I wasn't much help! icon_cry.gif

Thanks so much for answering the question. I like you, think it gets greasy and weak, but wasn't sure with the SPS if would make it more difficult to stack or too slippery??? Not sure the best way to do this. This will be my first time stacking a cake so high, 6 layers, and then having to drive over an hour to deliver. So I am pretty nervous about the whole thing and want to do it the best I can..... thanks again....

I have a three tier WEDDING cake due next week icon_eek.gif (this is my first wedding cake--a gift to the bride and groom). I will probably put plastic wrap on the cake board to help with the grease from the frosting but will not have it cover the bottom of the board; this way I can still put frosting/corn syrup/piping gel on the SPS plate to make sure it is "glued" to the cake board. Being the chicken that I am--lol--I will stack at the banquet hall. I am too worried that I will smudge up my borders if I do this ahead of time.

Good luck with your cake! icon_biggrin.gif

Nope, you do not need to cover the cardboards. They really don't soak up grease and get weak. Really they don't. and since they're sitting on a hard plastic plate, all will be fine.
