I'm making a rice krispy square cake for my friend for this Saturday for her wedding,

Should I support each tier like I would a cake or will the rice krispy tiers support themselves??

Anyone have any experience making a rice krispy square cake?? Any tips would be appreciated!

Thanks

I would say to put them in. I did one some years ago, and it was heavier that I imagined! thumbs_up.gif

I'm so glad you posted this link because I couldn't get my brain wrapped around what an RKT wedding cake was! icon_lol.gif

How did it turn out? I am looking to make a 3 tired rice krispie cake as well and can't figure out how to get the layers 4" high when cake pans are 2" high. I didn't want to see a seam in the center if I stacked 2 together. Thoughts?

Are you covering your tiers in fondant?  If so, you're going to have to coat the whole thing with something to even out the bumpiness of the RCT.  If you're coating the tiers with melted chocolate or something like that, the 'seam' is not going to show at all because the coating (if properly applied) will hide it.

AIf it is naked rice crispies, you could use a ring mold. They come 4" high, and all sizes. It would be easier to get out, too. Just butter it, or wrap the inside with buttered parchment paper, and set it on a buttered parchment paper. You could use a cake pan, or cookie sheet, or the counter.
