Hello. I am making my first 3 tier cake (6 inch, 10 inch and 14 inch) and want to know if I need a cake circle wrapped in wax paper between the layers? Can anyone give me some helpful advice as to how to stack a 3 tier cake? Thanks

There are great videos on youtube. But, I don't wax my boards, for in between layers. Use a good dowel, or plastic dowel. What most do, is take the size you're going to stack, and use that pan, and place it on the layer below. That marks the entire circle. Then, place inside that circle. A nice big plus sign, is best.

You'll need a cake board between layers, supported by dowels. If doing fondant, I use parchment paper between so the fondant doesn't stick. Sharon has a great DVD, Successful Stacking, with lots of great tips! Hth!
