I am building a crocked cake stand that uses a center post for support. What is the best tool to use to core the center of the cakes so I can place them on the stand? I have tried to just cut a center hole on each layer of cake before icing and also tried just letting the center post "push" the cake out during stacking but I know there has to be a better way.
Wilton makes a cake corer for just this purpose. One of the few Wilton tools that works great
The Wilton one has been discontinued. (it was made of brittle plastic that breaks.)
Something like this (made of stainless steel) would work better:
Interesting, didn't know that. The one in the link looks good, but I wonder if it's too narrow for a lot of uses? The Wilton one was more like 1.5" wide - it worked with their tall tier stand and every center post setup I've needed. Maybe you can find one on eBay? lol
