Ok when I made my last cake it was with fondant. But when I took off my top cake, all the frosting and everything was stuck to the bottom of it. And there was a big bare shop there. What did I do wrong? Or is there a trick to this.

Thanks

Try putting parchment paper or wax paper cut to size under the cake board to keep it from sticking to the fondant or icing underneath.

Will this work if you are stacking buttercream tiers?

What if you sprinkled cornstarch or powdered sugar on top of the fondant before you add the next tier? The cake board shouldn't stick to the fondant then, I wouldn't think.

Yes, it will work with fondant or buttercream. The paper does not stick to the cake board so if it does stick to the lower cake, you can just carefully peel it off leaving the cake fondant or buttercream intact.

I also read about using the powdered sugar on the layer you are going to be placing the cake board on (only in the area the board will cover). I also read about using coconut in the same way.
