Sorry if this has been asked before, but I haven't found the answer.
I want to use one dummy tier on a 4 tiered cake (other 3 tiers will be cake). Does it matter where the dummy is in the order of tiers? If the dummy is the bottom tier or a tier supporting the one above, will it support the weight of the cake(s) above?
I was planning on using the dummy where the other 3 tiers would equal the correct serving sizes.
Hope that makes sense!
yes, a dummy on the bottom will support the 3 tiers of real cake above it. You can actually stand on a styrofoam dummy and it won't collapse .... they are stronger than they look.
Thanks so much! You're so helpful!
Absolutely. You can think of the dummy on the bottom as the world's strongest cake board.
