I don't have the cake corer tube for the tall tier cake stand. What is the best way to core out the middle of the cake so it's in the middle and not too large of a hole? Should I core the cake before it's frosted or after? Thanks for the help. Michele

You can use the riser tube to mark the cake and then cut with a knife. I tend to do it after in frosted.

You've used the stand previously, right?

No I have not used the tall tier stand before. What is a riser tool?

I think Leah might be referring to one of the posts, or that base post?

And yes, I cut out the holes after the cake is frosted.

So, are you placing each cake on a cake circle, then on the plate? that is what works remember to cut a hole in each of your cake circles as well. thumbs_up.gif

As for transporting your cake...this is a tip I was given. icon_smile.gif
-Each cake on the plate will be placed on a cake pan smaller than the plate.
-I cut pieces of non-skid material and layed a piece of it across the top of the pan, then placed the cake tier on top. the material keeps it from sliding back and forth on the pan. thumbs_up.gif (I actually decorated like this as well)
-lay non-skid material down in your vehicle so the pans don't slide around.
+Another idea that I did - I bought a large sheet of (maybe 2"?) foam rubber and cut out small holes where each plate would rest. Placed the foam down in my van-placed the cakes and I never had an issue!
Good luck!
