i've done a couple tiered cakes recently and every time the board is removed from the top tier, the next tiers top fondant comes off with it. does that make sense?? how should i fix this? wax paper between the board and fondant?

you can place a light dusting of powdered sugar or coconut under the tier to help prevent sticking icon_smile.gif

I use a piece of wax paper that I attach to the above cake board with buttercream. Has worked great!

I just put a piece of wax paper between the bottom tier and the top tier. I don't "glue" it down or anything, it stays in place just fine. When I remove the top tier for cutting it doesn't disturb the bottom tier at all. I use the same size cake pan as the top tier as a guide to cut the wax paper round...putting the wax paper on the bottom tier first also helps me to center the top tier perfectly when I assemble my cake.
