When I look at these wonderful cake shows, they are taking their cakes and dowling them down theses long poles.

My question is , how do they find the center of the cake after and put the hole into it? Did I ask this clearly enough? The center is going through the cake and the cake board.

HOW?! icon_cry.gif

If you are going to core your cake, what i do is take a piece of parchment paper (waxed paper works too) cut in the size of the cake, and fold it in half then in half again, when you unfold the paper you have an X in the center where you can mark. Very easy.

There are round and square cake markers that are fairly inexpensive to purchase. They take most of the guesswork out. The markers are also great for marking garland points at the top of the cake.

most likely they cut a hole in their cake board before they put cake on it, so they found the center of the board before any decorating took place

u make the hole in the cake board before you put your cakes on it, and all the holes line up.
