Making a 9" square by 9" high baby block cake- is the following ok?
total 4-2" high cakes, buttercream between each, stacking first 2 layer with buttercream center and then placing dowels and foamcore board slightly small than 9" and stacking the next 2 layers?? One dowel threw center to hold in place? Any other ideas would be appreciated, thanks in advance
Was also wondering- would it be more crisp looking with fondant panels (let dry a bit) and then attach to the sides?? Anyone made one before ?? would appreciate some ideas order is for next weekend. Thnks in advance
has anyone tried the fondant panels??
I have not tried the panels but I have seen it done on some of the food network shows. I like the look. It looks like they just use a sharp knife to cut to fit.
Hopefully, someone with experience will answer soon.
What about covering the sides with ganache so you get a crisp look?
Yep, panels work best. One of my fave cakes to make! This was 8x8. I assemble, and ice all at one time. I use a hot stainless steel ruler for final edge sharpening.
