I don't feel comfortable assembling on site - just too nervous. I'd rather transport a fully assembled cake. I'm trying to decide on which method would work best:
Stress Free Cake Supports
If you have any of these, please give me your input! I'd be much obliged
And the cake will be really heavy.
good point!! Forgot about that....
I was thinking of buying a rolling cart (flat topped) for things such as this. My husband is pretty brauny but if the cake falls over...I can't even think about it.
If I put 3 tiers together then another 3 tiers, I would be able to lift the smaller 3 tiers onto the lower ones. Do I need to put a dowel thru all 6 tiers at that point? I've never done a cake higher than 3 tiers so this will be a challenge.
It's not 6 tiers...but I just did a 4 tier with fondant and that sucker was heavy. At one point in the assembling I had to lift the top 3 tiers to adjust the bottom columns. I really wouldn't suggest trying to lift 3 tiers and place on the cake, especially at the venue.
My 4 tier was SOLID with SPS. and I had stop and go traffic, someone stop short, and railroad tracks! Makes me sweat just thinking about it again. But the cake didn't move.
I'd suggest a cart. Me and another baker friend carried it into the venue and our arms were tired.
