im trying to make a 12" 2 layer cake,with a 10' 2 layer cake on the top do i need to support the second tier and if so how? can i just get the supports that you stick in the cake. and how many do i need,and is it a good idea to use pudding for the filling or is that to mussy. TIA
Yes you need support or it will sink into the bottom tier. There are step by step instructions on stacking in the article section of this site. BE SURE your supports are all the same length and that your layers are level. If you use pudding as a filling you will have to use a very stiff BC dam to hold it in. If this is your first time stacking a cake I personally wouldn't use pudding..........way to easy for the layers to slide.
thanks tigg2.im going to try and make my own butter cream,is ther anything i can add to it to make it stiffer?
