Hello Cakers!

I spent the entire day Saturday making a 2 tiered Spider man cake... The bottom layer was covered in Red Butter cream with Black Spiderwebs and the top was covered with Blue Butter cream.
I iced the two layers separately... but how to you get the stacks on top of each other without messing up the icing?... see picture under name...

My only thought would be to freeze it... and of course I thought of that a day late!! haha!

Is there any other tricks of getting this down perfectly?

You almost had it right. Refrigerate until firm, and you can pick it up by the sides very briefly to position it without it smudging. Very briefly though.

If you used SPS for support, you simply slide the upper tier (on its own board) onto the plate.

If you used dowels for support, and stuck a cardboard on top of the dowels, then you simply slide the upper tier (on its own board) onto the cardboard.
