HELP!! how can i keep 2 tier or more cakes from settling ??????? THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Perhaps I don't understand your question but umm, gravity... I'm not sure that you can unless you freeze them?
Not really sure, hopefully someone else can help? I always allow time for my cakes to settle before I cover and stack them. Also, your cakes are on supports right? Not sitting directly on the cake below?
You can't!! It's natural for a cake to settle but if you are having problems with blowouts of icing or your cake is sinking into each other there could be several problems :
Are you properly supporting your top tier ie dowels, sps, or boba tea straws? Every stacked cake needs support between each tier. There is a thread on sps that is a sticky one one of the forums. I can't remember which one though. Here are some links that could help you:
FYI a board between the tiers is not enough so if you run across a video or something that tells you that info they are incorrect
Did you allow each tier to settle before you stacked them?
Sugarshack has some videos that would help with the blowout of icing between the layers of the cake if that is the problem that you are having but here are some more links:
Here are the SPS insturctions. Go to page 15 of the sticky.
Here's a method to minimize the effects of settling.
Great---thanks for the photo illustration
