I had a two tiers stacked cake, a 10" and 8" on top with a board in between. While trying to separate the tiers the fondant stuck to the board and I lost the top of the bottom layer. Please any suggestions so that this doesn't happen again!
I sprinkle either some corn starch or powdered sugar on the lower tier just where the upper tier would touch before placing the next one on top. That seems to help the sticking.
I cut a piece of parchment paper (about 1/4" smaller than the tier sitting on top of it) and place that between the tiers.
I never had that happen b4 but know I will take precaution and use parchment paper! thnx
Are there any tutorials or videos for stacking fondant cakes?
I have looked for quite a while but can't seem to find any.
Thanks to everyone for their replies, I have a summer four tier wedding cake coming up and really appreciate the help!
i also use parchment paper,but i also found that i cut the dowels slightly higher than the cake when stacked and covered with ribbon etc you cant tell i have never had a problem separating layers doing this
