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 icon_smile.gif

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
