When stacking a tiered cake, is it better to keep a cardboard cake board underneath the top tier or a plastic cake board? I've got a cake to deliver this weekend, 2 tiers covered with fondant, but never sure how to best deal with the cardboard cake board. I know this is probably a dumb question, but it's the only way to learn, I suppose.

I always use cardboard cake circles and straws for stacking. I don't cover the cardboard that goes between the tiers either...just the cake base that the bottom tier sits on. There are some great tutorials on youtube "how to stack a cake" that may help you...I love tutorials...because I'm a "visual" learner. thumbs_up.gif

thanks. I usually like the videos too, but most don't address what to put under the cake (what type of round - plastic/cardboard/etc). Usually just addresses HOW to stack them. Thanks for your input.
